+Eric R I agree. The only solution is to get government out of education.

Should this go in my portfolio?
From today's trip to Lake Conestee Nature Park in SC. I'm testing a Nikon 200-500 mm lens I rented for a week. This morning was the first test. It was cold and cloudy, not the best situation for a long lens. This shot was part of a spray and pray series that just got lucky. The shutter speed was too slow to stop motion but the motion blur on the wings looks good to my eye. I didn't realize I had a good one until I got home and loaded it on my co...

Where are the days of Walter Cronkite. When New spokes persons largely told the truth. Not to start arguments I heard right out of his mouth most of the statements
