A mission of national import: We're driving home from Durham later today, after visiting the kindergarten of our 5 and 3/4-year old great niece.
On today's visit, we will finally get to observe the magic of her teacher, Miss M—, a legendary figure in this young scholar's home.
Over the weekend, we've been immersed in the wonders of the alphabet more than in the occasional small imperfections of the American press corps. Despite this, we will return to full services on Tuesday morning.
If you go to the bank, and you give them a dollar bill, they will give you twenty nickels! But is that actually a good deal?
This question has never been fully settled. Our great niece is far from sure.
