We didn't have millions of illegals crossing into our borders and having unlimited babies, driving without drivers license and registration and claiming welfare, either. OH, Boy, those good old days. I really miss them.

You do know that the English colonists were illegal immigrants having unlimited babies, right?

WilliamsBubb is awesome. So is Landelsburg and Williamsburg at Monta Loma; Stevenson PACT does a colonial days reenactment, too. It would be great if the Voice could get out to ALL of our elementary schools more often and celebrate the terrific hands-on learning that goes on at each school. There's no standardized test data to prove it, but the 5th grade colonial reenactments and 4th grade gold rush days and 2nd grade Little House on the Prairie days present wonderful opportunities for kids to experience social studies firsthand. It definitely sticks with them and sparks a lifelong interest in learning! Kudos to ALL our Mountain View elementary schools!

Palin:

Uh, the English were not illegals, since there were no laws in the land during the time. Study your history.
