"I graduated from Baker High School, located in Baker City in Baker County, Oregon. I've written in the past about what it was like to come from that educational background to the high standards of Macalester College. The short answer is: it was hard. I felt (and still feel) robbed of key opportunities most of my classmates had."

Speaking of hard. I never went to school, having been schooled by my mother in the fields, went to VN thanks to the draft. Gratefully, i was a hunter, trapper, and fisher person in some backwater hick town. The Veterans admin. let me go to school for the first 5 years, the dojo prepared me for the next 5 at the University, 3 degrees,
If you went to a college, do not cry! Did momma and dad pay the bill?? I fist fought in the bars and back alleys for tuition and took the text book out of the library ASAP. Returned the book in the drop at the end of the semester. count your blessings
