Tonight's assignment was an experiment in using your recycled accounts. Parker and Malik, thanks for trying. A simple reset of your password will do the trick. Don't worry, only today's hard copy was an assignment worth points. Go to bed!

Personal Connection Part 2

The theme that I’m going to personally connect to is “Great leaders don’t always do great things.” The way this theme ties into my personal life is that some leaders in my life, such as the school board, don’t always do great decisions. That part of good decisions is just judgment also because, for example, with the uniforms, some people think that its good because it stops a lot of fights and arguments because if someone else came to school with some nice clothes, and then someone else came to school with some none descent clothes, then nine times out of ten the person with the nice clothes will make fun of the other one. This example brings me to my next thought. The clothes thing is kind of like when Chairman Mao Zedong started the Cultural Revolution and people, called Red Guards, went around China cutting peoples pants. That is how a fight could be started with school. They could have this huge group of people that were “middle class”, and then they would have a giant group of people that were “peasants”. Mao would be the school board, students who were followers of “Mao” would be Red Guards, middle class would be students who were nice clothes, and peasants would be students with raggedy clothes. The school board would the say, “everyone come dressed as equals so that we don’t have any quarreling going on.” So the knuckle headed people wear what they want to wear and the others wear uniform so that they don’t get in trouble. So then the knuckle-headed people and the others start fighting because the others don’t think that it is fair that they have to wear uniform and the knuckle-headed people can wear what they want. So then the school board following students go around the school and cut up pants of the knuckle heads. The knuckle heads then see that what they were doing was not fair and it was costing them money that they all started wearing the same thing and every student liked each other and they all were good.. for some time at least. This is how Mao wasn’t a good leader at one time because instead of taking the initiative, he took to long. Therefore “Great leaders don’t always do great things.”
