The Docks in the crosshairs

I see Carty and crew have found the last remaining successful venue still standing in Toledo.

whudafxup ? ? ? how can the FCC allow that on TV ? ? ?

I curse more than the average guy. I also enjoy crass television shows and enjoyed this week's South Park where Cartman fakes having Tourettes so he can curse with immunity. IMHO, it's the funniest show they've done to date.

My point is that I'm not easily offended by words. At the same time I don't necessarilly want to review the many uses of the word f*** with my 11-year old son.

What's in a name?

I was extremely dismayed to learn recently that my school district (Sylvania) requires that a child turn 5 by August 1st of the year in which they will be starting kindergarten. (Seems like a bizarre cutoff to me, since children don't even start school until late August! But I digress...)

Are there any local Ohio kindergartens which have a later date? (Public or Private)
