    I'm not sure if you structured your sentence this way on purpose or not.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    No damn it. I saw the error after I couldn't fix it. It was a much better joke if I had actually phrased it correctly.

    I should take a picture of all the books I've read aloud to my class this year. It's a massive pile.

    It's good that they are getting it from somewhere.

    My oldest daughter's favorite book was "I'll Love You Forever" and my other two daughters' favorite book was "Are You My Mother?" (about a baby bird who falls out of it's nest and runs around, trying to find his Mother).

    I let them listen to a few chapters of a Junie B. Jones audiobook. I really don't like those books, but I wanted to expose them to the series in case they want to read them on their own someday.
