Ian & I watched your P.S. DuPont video. He wondered why a grown ass man who didn’t go to that school is such a whining ass pussy baby about something that happened 40 years that he did not experience himself.Maybe because you are like those black folks that go on & on & on & on & on slavery, something they did not experience either.
Dear Ian,I would like to thank you for your thoughtful and mature question.Let me try and answer it as best as I can.You know how you dad likes to write articles about Brittney Spears and Miley Cyrus?And how he likes to read about what they drink at Starbucks and where they exercise and what color their leggings are and how that is different this week than last and what does that really mean?That is called being a reporter.Your dad has never met Brittney or Justin or any of those people. But still he learns about them, so he can explain to the world what these young people are about.Now, pretend your dad was doing something important.Like writing about criminals.And how the prey on old people.You know, the kind of criminals that your grandfather talked about when your dad wanted to go to P.S. duPont.That is a different kind of reporting.And when I write it or talk about it, people read it.Admittedly, big pictures with lots of arrows are better.But there are dinosaurs out there who insist on reading things like that.And when a lot of people read what you write, that book shows up on the best seller lists.It also gets you lots and lots of journalism awards.If you are interested in that, I would encourage you to check out your local Jr. High library. May I recommend something by the Hardy Boys.But beware: Some of the ignorant boys at school like to laugh and make fun of the smart kids.We have a name for these kids when they get older: We call them bus boys.So don’t you pay them any mind.I hope I’ve cleared that up for you.And if you have any more questions, you can ask me again.I’m sorry they did not cover this kind of big bad stuff at Montessori school. But I feel it is better you learn about the way the real world works the sooner the better.My regards to T-Bone.
