In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone could have.
Lee Iacocca, automobile executive (b. 1924)
Lee was a smart man.
I've read (but can't confirm) that he was the original idea man behind the Minivans brought out by Chrysler Motors in the 80's. Considering how ubiquitous they are, those of us who own them owe him a debt of gratitude.
Did you know anyone who avoids rain to the extent that he/she will not leave the house when it is raining, or if there is a chance of it? I am here to tell you that it is maddening!! This person's father was the same way. It has gotten so bad that our daughter calls this person "Doppler", since he is always quoting the weather people. GAH!
