Today, most family-wage jobs in Washington require some form of post-secondary education or training. By 2014, 77 percent of those jobs will require training or education after high school — in King and Snohomish counties the number jumps to 85 percent. And yet, Washington allows too many of its children to graduate from high school unprepared for post-secondary life.

Leave it to our state’s major political parties to not know the meaning of “no.”
I’m planning to write one of those self-help, motivational books one of these days. That is, if I can get up for it. I almost got around to it yesterday, but I got invited to a chili feed at the last moment.
Compared to other living things, we humans are peculiar in lots of ways.
Summer is finally heating up and that means people will be looking for ways to cool off.
