so timely...

...is this article about woodworking classes for kids from the Times! ...and so related to my last post about appreciating pre-mobile media-social media pasttimes. It's not surprising that wood shop class is on its last legs, but it is sad. With the dwindling presence of such educational opportunities, common sense and basic skills and knowledge are also dwindling. This may explain some of the stupid things I see everyday...like people forgetting to turn on their lights when driving in bad weather or at night.
