Produce at the grocery store that's about at the end not being discounted.

Nobody's going to pay full price for it, so it ends up going in the trash.

On a related note, hearing that there are food shortages and going to the grocery store and seeing the produce department full, the fresh meat department full, and the frozen pizza section is almost empty.

That's interesting because when my wife goes shopping now it's the exact opposite.

Ah, the power went out at 9:18 pm. No lights, no TV, no internet, no power, no CPAP. No job to go to in the morning. Everything closed during the day. This was my first anxiety attack since the order was issued. Gladly, power resumed three hours later. (Same incident last July and power was out 36 hours).

I am a high school football and track and field coach. While I knew it was coming the official cancellation of the track season really burns. My heart aches for my seniors.

High school GPA’s > 4.0

I saw an article today that listed a valedictorian with a 5.6 GPA. What does that even mean? I know it’s common in some districts to weight AP or advanced classes with a 5 for an A (and a 4 for a B), but how does one get more than 5 points per class?

I read somewhere a few years ago that grade points are up but standardized test scores are down. The biggest culprits are ritzy private schools. People joke about schools with no grades but grades become sort of meaningless anyway.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Which is more meaningless the standardized test score or the grades?

I would go with both.
