    For a second I thought of getting married, having kids, just so I could send them to some of these local outstanding educational citadels…

    I *have* been watching the gutting and renovation of the two story building at the corner of Clinton and Remsen for Packer with interest.

    No doubt Packer and St. Ann’s are both amazing schools but when a friend showed me the college matriculation lists for the Seniors at each school, St. Ann’s was clearly a step ahead of Packer. Makes me want to have a kid some day. And get rich.

    A step ahead for St Ann’s, if you want Junior to major in, say, puppetry, and not engineering

    When it comes to private school, I suggest you do those things in reverse order.

    It’s funny we used to call these, and especially the level Above this, “illuminati” schools. We also used to call the level Above this: “Saintgrotelsex” for St Andrew’s, Groton, Middlesex, et al. Also, patriots who have studied these institutions have discovered various schools supply different specialties to the overall control mechanism. We used to infiltrate and give out American Free Press’ on the Kent School campus. Boy, was THAT appreciated by the darlings up there….
