Did Bruce Tinsley, with his comic strip "Mallard Fillmore," hit a raw nerve for Dave Wilson? I agree with Mr. Tinsley. On more than one occasion I have threatened to take some young person back to their high school and demand a refund on my tax money for the defective "graduate" that school had produced. Math skills are needed in the construction industry, and most graduates of public education, i.e. government education system, do not have them.
