    Teacher Ken:  I have a homework assignment for you. Please re-write this diary omitting two words: 'I' and 'my.' Then re-post it, and see what is the reaction? I am serious; it would do us all a world of good! And I shall be very interested to see how you would go about doing this!
    Best wishes,
    JIM/santa fe

      I do not have the time, nor do I think it would be intellectually honest, since it is drawn largely from my personal experience.

      Besides, the diary has already had plenty of traffic, and my use of the 1st person pronoun forms hardly seems a barrier for people to connect with the underlying idea.

      Those who can, do. Those who can do more, TEACH! If impeachment is off the table, so is democracy

        Not sure what Jim from Santa Fe is getting at? Is it somehow narcissistic to speak from one's own experience?

        I loved Teacherken's diary. In fact, I'm trying to find a way to introduce the concept of a Sabbath back into my secular life, although I doubt I'll spend the day washing dishes!

        Cheerio, and happy Sunday, people.

      write essays without using the word "there."  It was a challenging assignment.
