Well stated, young Edmonston. I, for one, not only believe you, but I believe in you. Call me naive, but I have teen-aged daughters. Forgive me for saying this, I have seen them with their friends and they can be, for lack of a better term, 'ghetto'. However, when they converse with me or another adult, they are quite articulate. Don't get me started on their writing skills. You wouldn't believe what you were reading was coming from the same brain as the girl that was just conversing in perfect street vernacular with her compadres....However, I do understand where Cynique and Abm get their suspicions. I am always surprised when a teen-ager not only shows an interest in reading, but takes pride in his/her writing. We hear so much negativity that we automatically tend to lean that way. Of all the teens that I have come in contact with I can think of three that would fit into a category with young Mr. Edelstein. If indeed he is sixteen, he is a rare find.
Mr. Eckstenson---I not only applaud you, I encourage you to continue in your academic endeavors. Keep stiving for excellence you have done yourself proud. You are a fine '16' year old man....If, however, it turns out that you are fifty, SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!
