Can you even imagine that he did not approve of Pulp fiction?

What? Are you talking about the Tarantino movie? If so, maybe he didn't like the f-word said 400 times. A lot of older people didn't like that about PF.

Wasn't I in high school about a zillion years before the Tarantino move that was named after Pulp fiction but really had nothing to do with Pulp fiction?

Isn't it theoretically possible that you were a 30-something-year-old high school student in 1993 when the movie came out? After all, weren't those actors in the movie Grease in their 30s?

Do you think I goofed off that much in school that I would have been kept back twelve years? :lol:

Do you deny being a bit goofy at times?

Were you like me, a serious student who was somehow able to be goofy at times and in situations when goofiness was acceptable?

Were there other teachers besides Mr. Mitchell who inspired you or were you largely bored by your other teachers?

Is Murray a little-known German name? :lol: What was his influence on you?

Did you ever have a teacher who taught classes on his sex and drug experiences while traveling in Europe? :lol:

Umm.... no. :lol:

Did he ever get in trouble for sharing that stuff? I'm surprised he wasn't fired.

Don't you remember that the 70s were a much more liberal time? What were your teachers like?

Yeah, I remember the 70s -- a liberal golden age. Then the Reagan movement changed it all.

I don't remember any of my teachers being non-conventional. One exception was Mr. Yockey. I had him in 8th grade which was about 1972. He was a hippie -- he had the long hair and mustache, he used words like groovy and dig-it a lot, and when he talked politics it was pretty left-wing. Oh man did he hate Nixon and he let us know it, too.

What one person in your life has had the biggest impact in helping you formulate your political opinions?

Would you believe that all the political people I knew conspired to convince me that politics is a form of mental illness?

So even politicians with whom you largely agree are mentally ill?

Don't you judge politicians by different standards than normal people?

Is there something wrong with me, or with the system, that I've never respected a single modern-day politician?

Isn't that why the people were so desperate to elect an outsider?

When has electing an outsider ever yielded positive results?
