Another President Kennedy
When we went to take our daughter back to college last weekend, we left our oldest son behind, since he had an important obligation at school -- running for Sophomore class President at Mountain View High School, the largest school in Idaho.
On Saturday, he called us with the news -- he'd won! In order to better serve his constituents, Rob started a new blog: "Why Not The Worst". The title, for those old enough to remember it, comes from Bill The Cat's slogan for the 1988 Presidential race. One of the slogans that put Rob over the top was one he got from me:
You can see some of his other slogans in his first entry. He's really pretty funny... and I'm sure he'll get better at spelling eventually. I do note, however, that he didn't mention one of the main reasons he was able to coast to victory, which was spelled out in one of his other slogans: "All of his opponents are girls". That's apparently the key to victory in high school elections -- split one sizable demographic while keeping another to yourself.
Since the best I ever did was Freshman class president at a very small school, it looks like he's already well on the way to doing better than his old man -- in something other than height, in which he passed me when he was 13.
