Hi all ---

I've lurked here for a long time, but some things I can't pass up...

Have you never met anyone that just "couldn't" learn something? I'm a good
example, after college degrees and 20 years of teaching, I still cna't
spell worth beans. And multiplication tables... My wife, who is also a
teacher, could never remember 7 times 8. To this day, she still multiplies
7 time 4 and doubles the answer.

Please don't tell me that anyone who can't do something just doesn't try.
