In the 1950s, one of the masters at the Boston Latin School, which I attended, was Conrad Jamison, who supplemented his income as a professional actor.

He kindly invited me to volunteer for a part in the Boston Arts Festival production of George Bernard Shaw’s The Devil’s Disciple. I did apply, and I was accepted for a minor role.

Others in the cast included E.G. Marshall of the Number One-rated television show, The Defenders; Felicia Montealegre, the wife of Leonard Bernstein; Martyn Green, the principal Gilbert & Sullivan performer for D’Oyly Carte; and Kevin McCarthy, who recently died at the age of 96. It was a great experience which I shall always remember.

"Kevin McCarthy, a versatile actor who forever earned a place in horror film history as the small-town doctor who uncovers a chilling secret in the 1950s thriller "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," died Sept. 11 of pneumonia at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, Mass. He was 96.

"McCarthy, the brother of novelist and literary critic Mary McCarthy, enjoyed a reputation as an extraordinarily busy and dependable performer over eight decades – – – McCarthy, whose father was a lawyer, was born in Seattle on Feb. 15, 1914. After his parents died during the 1918 influenza epidemic, he bouncFACE="Times New Romaned among boarding schools and relatives, some of whom were physically abusive.

"He was separated from his three siblings, including his older sister Mary, whose works included the 1963 bestseller "The Group." She died in 1989."

Dear Friend of the Constitution:

I hope you can join me in Arlington, VA on September 17 to commemorate the two hundred twenty second anniversary of the completion of the Convention that gave us our U.S. Constitution.

There is no admission fee, but because attendance will be limited by the size of the room, we must know as soon as possible whether you plan to attend. (If you read this just prior to the event, please just show up and we will try to find you a seat)

TCC is sponsoring Constitution Day for the ninth consecutive year, in cooperation with The Conservative Caucus Foundation and the U.S. Taxpayers Alliance.

You will have the opportunity to learn more about the Constitution from a top champion in the Virginia Legislature, Delegate Bob Marshall.

I know that you and I share a love and respect for the Constitution, and that we each want Constitution Day to have a powerful impact.

Americans 'Send Them a Message' to Repeal ObamaCare!

The Conservative Caucus (TCC) launched today the "Pledge to Repeal ObamaCare" campaign at Americans are urged to visit and print the Pledge to Repeal ObamaCare and get their Senators, Representative and candidates for the House and Senate to sign the pledge.

Howard Phillips, TCC’s Chairman, announced the new campaign and the launch of, "This is a vital step in repealing Obama’s Socialist medicine scheme, to help keep the pressure on members of Congress to resist the influence of special interests and liberals in both parties who will be lobbying to avoid repealing ObamaCare.

Make no mistake, there are many powerful individuals and companies who will quickly learn how to profit from health care rationing and other elements of Socialist medicine; they will fight efforts by Americans to repeal this dangerous scheme."

Mr. Phillips invited Americans to pass the word to their friends; "As concerned citizens, your action and that of your friends can make the difference, and I invite you to visit now and send ‘them’ a message."

In conclusion, Mr. Phillips noted the effectiveness of videoing pledge signing and deliveries, "Under the scrutiny of a video camera, you may find members of Congress and candidates more willing to be courageous and sign the pledge to repeal ObamaCare, than in the quiet of their office with special interests looking over their shoulder."

The Conservative Caucus (TCC) is a grass roots action organization, formed in 1974. It was active in opposing the ObamaCare bill, defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, and impeaching President Clinton.

  Home Schooling  | Digg This

Recently I was asked "If you were going to homeschool your own children today, what curriculum and method would you choose?".

I am, in fact, helping to homeschool four of my grandchildren, and my method is very simple: a) I share life experiences with them, b) I give them books to read which I think are of particular value and importance, c) I ask them to write reports on each of those books, d) I emphasize vocabulary and grammar, et cetera. So far, each of them is doing very well on their College Board tests and college admissions.

My youngest son, Sam, was homeschooled, even while he resided in his mother’s womb, and he was accepted at every college to which he applied, including Hampden-Sydney, William and Mary, Virginia Military Institute, Christendom College, and The Citadel. In most cases, he was offered scholarships.

We had no fixed curriculum, but we made sure he was well versed in the Constitution, the Bible, current events, history, et cetera.

You also ask "If you were going to invest in career education today, where would you place a bet on demand for the future? What skills would you develop in order to be a viable worker in the economy of the future?".

My answer is very simple. There will always be a demand for integrity, energy, as well as verbal and written communication skills.

Good men are hard to find, and they usually will have no problem whatsoever in finding suitable opportunities.

Thanks for asking.
