Kay's Commentary 2007-05-12

Download File The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling: A while back, some listener called and said that Bill Gates -- the Bill Gates -- was using some of my stuff. If it’s true, I figured that imitation is the best form of flattery. Were it someone else, I might be indignant and call it plagiarism. So much for ego. Whatever -- I’d now like to return the possible compliment. Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feeling good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world. Rule 1: Life isn’t fair - get used to it Rule 2: The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself. Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both the phone and the $60,000. Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity. Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them. Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you are. Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as many times as you want to get it right. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life. Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time. Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs. And finally, Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one. If you agree, pass this on. If you can read this - Thank a teacher If you are reading it in English -Thank a soldier I want to say a few things about political correctness, and how it has been the worst human characteristic that we have allowed our children to live by for the last five decades. And about the recent 18% raise that our county leaders have taken for themselves -- how come these bleeding heart liberal lawmakers are always eager to help the needy and handicapped, but first they have to take hefty salaries and pensions for themselves, and then if anything is leftover, they’ll help those in need? For KSCO and KOMY, this is Kay Zwerling. Copyright 2007
