Matthew K *IS* Jack Bauer

Matthew brought home a serious homework assignment from Kindergarten this week: Write a story. It had to be three sentences long, with the kid spelling and writing all by himself, (We were allowed to sound out the words for him though) and a picture was also required.

Matthew's first idea for a story was this: "Matthew K went to the Mall. Then two bad guys came in and it went BOOM!"

"No, I don't think we'll be turning that one in, Matthew," I said. This isn't a market in Baghdad. We don't want your teacher to label him an Insurgent right off the bat. That's almost as bad as "ADHD" on your permanent record these days.
