Last night, the Matron served as a Judge at the Junior High Science Fair. She read a dozen papers written by eighth graders. Ten would've earned high B's at her community college!!
Perhaps her favorite eighth grade reasoning moment was this analysis of the benefits/drawback of talk therapy versus medication for depression:
"The drawback to talk therapy is that it is very expensive. Talk therapy can be as much as $100 to $175 an hour and the hour is really only 50 minutes so there is that ten minute cost to consider. A pill works the whole hour."
