“Do your children view themselves as successes or failures? Are they being encouraged to be inquisitive or passive? Are they afraid to challenge authority and to question assumptions?

“At this very moment,... the most frightful horrors are taking place in every corner of the world. People are being crushed, slashed, disembowelled, mangled; their dead bodies rot and their eyes decay with the rest.

These are distressing facts; but do we enjoy life any the less because of them? Most certainly we do not.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)

Catherine: Theyre the worst. College girls are one step from the street, I tell you.”
