Good column from Atlanta from a dad who doesn't miss the annual scramble now that his youngest is off to college. It *is* amazing how none of the supply goodies you can get for free (pens from the hotel or conference, backpack from the camp give-away, etc.) are ever actually the right supplies for school. Must be a conspiracy.... Where do all those mechanical pencils disappear to anyway? Must be in that same secret compartment with all the single socks that go missing.

    It looks like a generic lock but you can move the wheels and numbers to create pretty much an infinite number of combinations. Tell me if anyone else finds this cool.

    A lot of people in Atlanta took advantage of the tax free school week. Nice post.
