I am sorry to report that one of our classmates, George Connor, died Sunday at the age of 65. But George, seeing the proof of his homework assignment disappear, was not to be overcome by the forces of nature. After handing a test back for student review and class discussion, she asked that students (who were sitting in alphabetical order) to pass their tests to the right, placing their tests on the bottom. "I asked you to put your test on the bottom, not the top! The day came when we were discussing the Roman army and how they lived, traveled throughout the Roman Empire, and went about setting up their protective encampments.... "Why didn't they put the dirt on the side of the ditch? "George, what different does it make WHICH side of the ditch the Romans put the dirt?He grabbed the 3-foot wooden pointer that lay on the chalk tray and crawled up the air shaft to retrieve his work. Someone wasn't listening or didn't understand and placed their test on top, thus confusing the alphabetical order of the forms. " The stress of the day caught up with woman and the tears began to flow. "And when the Roman army set up camp," Miss Work quietly explained in her soft voice, "they would dig a ditch around their camp to protect themselves from..." As Miss Work went on to finish her thought, a hand was raised from the attentive students... " "Miss Work," asked George Connor, "What did they do with the dirt? " "Good point," Miss Work responded thinking she had appeased the inquiry of a listening student, "they probably put the dirt on the side of the ditch..." Thinking she had made her concession and agreed to an explanation, she continued... Why can't we just move on..."
