Of course he was investigated! At that benighted time in history, he had at least three strikes against him: he was Jewish, he was an immigrant, he was a Socialist, & his appearance was strange (Steinmetz had some type of spinal deformity). Whereas Thomas Edison was the "All-American boy!" I've read that Steinmetz was probably brighter & more innovative than Edison but was kept out of the limelight due to all the above.

This is what my outrageously high school taxes are supporting? Academic outcomes that are so low they can be tripped over. Criminal behavior in the schools. Use police authority then -- arrest them -- parents & students alike. This isn't "unacceptable behavior" -- this is gangsterism & let's stop using euphemisms.

PC is censorship -- get real. Same PC BS re: the use of the perfectly valid word "niggardly," which means stingy & mean-spirited parsimony [etymological base Scandinavian]. Just because people are ignorant, lacking in historical knowledge & a working vocabulary doesn't mean the entire world has to stoop to their level. If our standards get any lower, we'll all be tripping over them.

Barbara was a very special person w/a great love to be out & among other people; her dancing was amazing -- never stopped, danced to each tune. What endurance! May her reward be as large as her heart.
