In Loving Memory of ______

I'm not sure I like driving behind cars with decals in the back window that pay homage to the dead. I'm talking about "In Loving Memory" decals.... those little stickers that stare you in the face at red lights and make you do a quick year calculation to figure out how old the person lived to. Am I supposed to remember the deceased? Am I supposed to feel sorry for them? If not, why put it in my face. It makes more sense to me that these messages should be on the INSIDE of the car so that family members can look at them everyday. What do you think?

Fame and Fortune....

OK, it's not exactly the paparazzi, but I was surprised to discover that I've been photographed from high above. This picture from Microsoft Birdseye shows my school at dismissal time... and there I am at my gate duty (looks like yellow shirt day).
