    PC gone mad! If Mrs gogg and I were having our first born today, I,m sure a few pc eyebrows would have been raised.

    You see we both attended a special school, which is where we met. She suffered from, what would be termed today as, being slow. I on the other hand suffer from, what would be termed today as, Idiot savant syndrom.

    Apart from this and a few physical impairments we regard ourselves as good parents. We did have a few problems with our son but he has forgiven us and writes to us every couple of years or so.

    Nothing to do with being PC, just a pragmatic approach (which makes a change) driven by the realization that neither the parents, nor their offspring have anything tangible to contribute to society other than being financial burdens on the State.

    There's a lot to be said for mass culling & euthanasia in such cases.

    Then again, IT, in all its forms, is the silver bullet that will serve all our problems.
    Why spend money on a quality education, efficient services and complicated human solutions when machines can do it all for us?

    No need to teach the kids to read - far too time-consuming - just teach 'em to play computer games instead.
    After all, the menus at MacDonald's are all in pictures.
    Spelling and grammar? Easy - let them learn American with MS Word. (And anyway, testing whether they can express themselves clearly is obviously a right-wing conspiracy to lower the confidence of the lower classes!)

    Numbers? No problem because everybody has a calculator and besides, the DSS calculates the benefit for them anyway.

    Brilliant story the other week about the Aussie kids:

    In our day it would have been, "What did you say, Skippy? Stuck down a well? Follow you? DAD! Get the chopper!

    TT, are you an example of allowing a 'good one' to get through?
