Re: [EVDL] Odd that it burned completely (Was:SRJC student's Focus-conversion-EV burn

Lee,
You are so-right, I taught for two years in a large Juvenile Detention
Facility and some of the 14 to 21 year old Inmates in each class self
appointed themselves as "Teacher's Guards" even in my classes I have seen
them act to defend me against another student and take a punch or two. of
course I testified at the hearings so the attacker received a month in
"Solitary" and my defender had two weeks extra credit shortening his
confinement...
