this is seriously insane.

Dear Bill,

Good luck with all that.

I'm into it, the B&MG Foundation does good work, & elements of our educational institutions must be improved, including staffing, funding, curriculum, & facilities. My hope is that the School Of The Future retains Mexican Pizza on the lunch menu.
