John Steinbeck was one of America’s most prolific and insightful novelists. Renowned for his prize-winning works that most of us either enjoyed or endured at some point in our education (depending upon our perspective), one of Steinbeck’s lesser known novellas is my personal fa-vorite. It is a penetrating little book called “The Pearl.”

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Most tourists making a summer trip to Alaska will pass through Anchorage on their way to cruises, Denali National Park and other scenic adventures. While in Alaska's biggest city, also home to the state's largest airport, there are plenty of free things to do. Here are a few.
Freedom is a value we seek. We hold it as a right in the United States. We want it in our personal lives, even our professional lives. We hope to have it in our retirements and to pass it on to our children. Because we live fast-paced lives with rampant technological change, freedom often means we seek convenience. When things are convenient they seem to more readily fit our schedules. When something is convenient, it seems to help us gain some freedom of time or effort. Drive-thru fast food restaurants, cell phone providers, and other businesses seek ways to serve us in the most convenient fashion. We desire freedom and, therefore, want convenience because it promises us better results to live in this fast-paced society. Convenience buys us time and gives us freedom.

Congratulations, seniors. After a long 13-year voyage across a proverbial sea of knowledge, we have arrived, and are ready to leave port. We are now more mature, more learned, more worldly, due to the efforts of our teachers, parents, and friends that have taught us to navigate the educational waters. We have learned so much from Mountain View, and our futures seem as vast and as open as the sea. But that is just the surface — underneath the passive waves is a turbulent mystery. We know nothing of our oceans in comparison to our knowledge of interstellar space, just as we know nothing of our lives in comparison to where we will be in our future. Our English teachers told us to scuba dive to find meaning in our essays. We must swim deeper as well to discover meaning in ourselves and our surroundings.
I have read, in letter to editor sections, of Arizonans frustrated with our quality of education. It can be improved, especially in the elementary school level, the formative years.
NEW YORK — So, a lady walks into a bar...Wait, scratch that. A lady takes out her phone. With a left swipe of her finger she dismisses Alex, 25 and Robert, 48.
