Very very close! Cabinets went in this week. They did screw up the handles, which just means the cabinet doors will need to be replaced (not at our expense) some time down the line. Contractor aims to have everything "done" by the end of next week!!!

I never sleep poor on vacation and I directly contribute it to a concentrated amount of good food and booze.

Definitely reached the age where staying on a guest bed for a week completely destroys all my body muscles and not just my back. This is neat.

Hm, yes. Coercion is what I was getting at in my first comment. If the coach was making (coercing) students to pray with him, particularly by threatening playing time, that is deeply justifiable of administrative intervention. I'm assuming the prayers were probably egregious in nature because kneeling with your team after a football game is a common even anodyne occurrence in a lot of communities.

Wonder if the judges would be open to a coach coercing students into doing the evening Islamic prayer! One wonders!

(Also let me be clear. If I was elected your all powerful American Dictator, I would enforce separation of church and state with an iron fist.)

Hm. If that was the critical issue, seems like the firing would be pretty dubious reasoning.

I didn't do any real research into it, but was the coach making kids do a prayer with him after the game? Was the issue that a teacher/coach doing the prayer is seen as endorsement?
