The whole backpack phenomena really irritates me.  Our children look like hitchhikers.  In this era of abundant technology, the idea of lugging around the Amazon warehouse is illogical, not to mention a health hazard.  I’m not sure what they keep in their lockers. Of course the school campuses are generally so vast, they wouldn’t have time to get there between classes anyway.  Hopefully, the electronic textbook will get here soon and save us.  Meanwhile, I think the future looks bright for chiropractors.

Artist Christopher Stott has a thing for the nostalgic.  I’m reminded of my own school days, which involved among other things, mimeograph machines and Wite-Out correction fluid.
