Think that’s boring?
If “Education is boring,” try 40 hours a week on the garbage truck or 12 hours a day changing diapers at a day care or 24 hours a day with your own kids. Perhaps it is time to find out if there is a book for the class — if you can read more than the pictures —and if the teacher is actually saying something.

During Presidents Day, Trump is taking his third weekend vacation since taking office less than a month ago. Trump was outraged when President Obama took a vacation and went golfing.
