This list is for grown-up missing people who spent at least part of their childhood and/or adolescence in foster care or otherwise under guardianship of the state. I think it is a good idea for a list, even though it is quite short. Probably it should be longer.

Make-a-List Monday: Full scholarships

July 27, 2015

This list is for MPs who got full scholarships to college before they disappeared — whether they accepted said scholarships or not. I got a partial scholarship to attend Hendrix College. I forget how much it was, something like $4,500 a semester I think. Nothing terribly impressive; I was a pretty average applicant and I think just about everyone who attended got some kind of scholarship.

(For my non-American readers, a crash course in American colleges/universities’ financial aid system: a scholarship is financial aid a student is given based on merit, usually either academically or in sports or sometimes for some special talent in another area, such as music. Some are granted by the colleges/universities themselves, and others by private foundations and charities. The scholarship is often renewable each year and is usually conditional; that is, to keep getting it renewed a student must attend the college/university full time and keep up a certain GPA, or keep playing on the sports team, or whatever, depending on the nature of the scholarship. Some scholarships are only for students with certain majors, and if they change majors they lose their scholarship.

There are other forms of financial aid, called “grants” and “student loans”, that are given based on financial need. These are not conditional; you can keep getting them renewed as long as you are not flunking out of school. Student loans are much more common than grants and most students graduate tens of thousands of dollars in debt. This has been a growing problem in the United States and everyone is arguing over what to do about it. I have some ideas but they are neither here nor there.)

Anyway, the list of superior scholars:

  1. Stevie Danielle Bates for the University of Arizona (she didn’t take it, preferring to enroll at Hunter College instead)
  2. Michelle D. Crawford for Cameron University
  3. Ian Hunter Burnet for Virginia Commonwealth University
  4. LaQuanta Nichelle Riley for an unspecified school
  5. Jennifer Marie Wilmer for St. John’s University
  6. Amber Lynn Wilde for the University of Wisconsin at Green Bay

This list may be incomplete. I’ve got several other MPs where it was mentioned they were in college on a scholarship but I don’t know whether they got a full ride (that is, everything paid for) or just a partial scholarship like me.

Old blog posts worthy of another look

July 11, 2015

Tonight I was going through my “general” category looking to clean it out. “General” is a mixed bag category, meant for posts that are impossible for me to categorize elsewhere, or which are wedged into a few categories but are pretty broad in scope. I discovered that only some the posts in the “general” category, however, were REALLY uncategorizable. In many cases I simply forgot to add any categories to the post and WordPress thus put it in the “general” category automatically. In a few others, since writing the entry I’ve created categories I can put the post in, so I can remove it from the mixed bag of “general.”

But while I was going back through six and a half years of postings in “general,” I found some I wouldn’t mind bringing up to the surface again. Most are just thoughts about particular MP-related issues, or crime-related issues in general. (I’ve found my opinions on such matters haven’t changed since I started this blog.) Other entries are about issues I’ve had running the site. (There are so many posts in there about my computer woes that I’m thinking about creating a “computer trouble” category of its own, perhaps as a subcategory of “day-to-day website business.” But I haven’t had any computer woes since I got Orville, thanks to all of you.)

Here they are, in alphabetical order:

  1. Before they were missing
  2. Blaming the boyfriend — or, me on the soapbox again
  3. Border crossings
  4. Categories
  5. Comment guidelines*
  6. Georgia relaxes sex offender law
  7. Juveniles on the sex offender registry
  8. Lottery families
  9. “Missing” wanted criminals
  10. The myth of the dangerous internet and the “internet abduction”
  11. Photographs in my resolved section
  12. Programming disrupted, please stand by**
  13. Races
  14. Sigh.
  15. Suspicious versus odd
  16. Why do I do it? (first entry)
  17. Why do I do it? (second entry)
  18. Why I am against the death penalty
  19. Your latest edition of “some people really need to shut up”

*I do not currently, and have not for a long time, have any problems with people commenting on this blog. I just thought it would be good to put up anyway.

**This entry is on the list not for the entry itself but for the comments section, which is a bit entertaining to read.
