Scholars have estimated that by 1850, the aboriginal population in North America - besieged by the invaders' explosive weaponry, wondrous technology, contemptuous cruelty, and irresistible pathogens, as well as the Indians' own ever-deepening despair - was just one-tenth of what it had been when Columbus first ventured ashore. ~ Richard Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Richard Kluger
We make families of our own, Travis whispered in my arms on the last night we spent together. It starts with you and me and then it spreads. And whatever happens, there'll always be a part of me that's part of you. No matter what. ~ Steve Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Steve Kluger
As with real reading, the ability to comprehend subtlety and complexity comes only with time and a lot of experience. If you don't adequately acquire those skills, moving out into the real world of real people can actually become quite scary. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
The golden child may be the oldest one, unless it's the youngest. It may be the toughest one, unless it's the most sensitive. It's not even necessary that Mom and Dad have the same favorite - and typically they don't. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Older fatherhood isn't all bad: testosterone rates drop about 1% per year as men age, making them less reactive and more patient, and a professionally established middle-aged man is likely to have more time and money to devote to his kids than a twenty-something who's just getting started. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
My own life has in some ways been a decades-long tour of the sibling experience. I have full sibs, I have half-sibs, and for a time I had step-sibs. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Everybody loves to spend money at least some of the time - because everybody loves the stuff you can buy with it. The key to the pleasure level of any transaction is the balance between the pain of the payment and the reward of the purchased object. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
The death of anti-gay hate speech is no doubt being hastened by the head-spinning speed with which gays as a group - to say nothing of gay marriage - are becoming an unremarkable and even quite traditional parts of American life. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Marriage is a lot of things - a source of love, security, the joy of children, but it's also an interpersonal battlefield, and it's not hard to see why: Take two disparate people, toss them together in often-confined quarters, add the stresses of money and kids - now lather, rinse, repeat for the rest of your natural life. What could go wrong? ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Certainly, people can get along without siblings. Single children do, and there are people who have irreparably estranged relationships with their siblings who live full and satisfying lives, but to have siblings and not make the most of that resource is squandering one of the greatest interpersonal resources you'll ever have. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Well, I think of the folks who are the climate deniers as the flat Earthers and the people who say the moon landings never happened. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Athletes often start life at the opposite end of the wealth and prestige spectrum, but as soon as they exhibit an unusual talent for swinging a bat or sinking a free-throw they may find that the rules have been suspended for them. They are waved through school and into the pros, and incidents of bad behavior are overlooked or covered up. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Every batch of sperm represents an opportunity for genetic typos - called de novo mutations - to be passed on. A 20-year-old man and woman will each pass on about 20 de novo mutations to a baby they conceive. By the time the couple is 40, a woman's total has remained at 20, while a man's has jumped to 65 - and it keeps climbing from there. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Remember where you're standing when the spotlight goes off," Lovell warned me once, when our book was a best-seller and the movie it spawned was in theatres. "You'll have to find your own way off the stage. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
It's one of the worst-kept secrets of family life that all parents have a preferred son or daughter, and the rules for acknowledging it are the same everywhere: The favored kids recognize their status and keep quiet about it - the better to preserve the good thing they've got going and to keep their siblings off their back. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
And as long as I'm being brutally candid, I only wound up teaching American History because I followed a cute ass into the country-and-western section at Barnes & Noble ~ Steve Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Steve Kluger
There's a universe inside your head - a place of pictures and passions, of songs and sorrows. It's everything you are - and it's an utter mystery. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
At one stage in the heated intramural debate, ex-ACS president and longtime director Alton Ochsner took the floor and regaled his eminent colleagues with a tale intended to disarm those still unpersuaded by the proof against smoking. There was a certain Russian count, Ochsner told them, who, suspecting his attractive young wife of infidelity, advised her that he was leaving their home for an extended trip, but in fact posted himself at a nearby residence to spy on her. The very first night after his leave-taking, the count watched by moonlight as a sleigh pulled up to his house, a handsome lieutenant from the Czar's Guard bounded out, the count's wife greeted the hussar at the door and led him inside, and in a moment the couple was seen through an upstairs bedroom window in candlelit silhouette as they wildly embraced; after another moment the candle was blown out. "Proof! Proof!" said the anguished count, smiting himself on the brow. "If I only had the proof! ~ Richard Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Richard Kluger
Alexander Hamilton Junior High School
-- SEMESTER REPORT --

STUDENT: Joseph Margolis
TEACHER: Janet Hicks

ENGLISH: A, ARITHMETIC: A, SOCIAL STUDIES: A, SCIENCE: A, NEATNESS: A, PUNCTUALITY: A, PARTICIPATION: A, OBEDIENCE: D

Teacher's Comments:
Joseph remains a challenging student. While I appreciate his creativity, I am sure you will agree that a classroom is an inappropriate forum for a reckless imagination. There is not a shred of evidence to support his claim that Dolley Madison was a Lesbian, and even fewer grounds to explain why he even knows what the word means. Similarly, an analysis of the Constitutional Convention does not generate sufficient cause to initiate a two-hour classroom debate on what types of automobiles the Founding Fathers would have driven were they alive today. When asked on a subsequent examination, "What did Benjamin Franklin use to discover electricity?" eleven children responded "A Packard convertible". I trust you see my problem.

Janet Hicks

Parent's Comments:
As usual I am very proud of Joey's grades. I too was unaware that Dolley Madison was a Lesbian. I assumed they were all Protestants.
Thank you for writing.
Ida Margolis ~ Steve Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Steve Kluger
Scarily, football helmets, which do a fine job of protecting against scalp laceration and skull fracture, do little to prevent concussions and may even exacerbate them, since even as the brain is rattling around inside the skull, the head is rattling around inside the helmet. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Science has yet to isolate the Godiva Chocolate or Prada gene, but that doesn't mean your weakness for pricey swag isn't woven into your DNA. According to a new study of identical twins, it's less TV ads or Labor Day sales that make you buy the things you do than the tastes and temperaments that are already part of you at birth. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
It doesn't matter what people thinks of you as long as you know that your heart and head are in the right place. ~ Steve Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Steve Kluger
In class I was out of place because I could so easily be distracted from concepts by metaphors and facts. Clearly, I was less intelligent than I had hoped, and I felt frustrated by an inarticulate notion that something was wrong if old material was processed as if the immediate past and the uncertain future had no bearing on it. ~ Ruth Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Ruth Kluger
It's not mere extremism that makes folks at the fringes so troubling; it's extremism wedded to false beliefs. Humans have long been dupes, easily gulled by rumors and flat-out lies. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
I could be proud to have survived what some have called the asshole of creation, proud that it held me and couldn't keep me. But it is dangerous nonsense to believe that anyone contributed much to her own survival. ~ Ruth Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Ruth Kluger
I initially wanted to work in the music industry more on the A&R side. While I was in school, I began working in the New Business department of an advertising firm, and very quickly I was responsible for roughly 70% of their business, so you could say I had a natural knack for the advertising world. ~ Adam Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Adam Kluger
From the time we're born, our brothers and sisters are our collaborators and coconspirators, our role models and our cautionary tales, ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
My mother claims she didn't raise her son to settle down with a construction foreman who operates his own hardware chain. Even with the M.B.A. from Harvard. But it's not really the blue-collar thing that crawled up her ass. She and Clayton haven't agreed on anything since she found out he makes more money than she does. ~ Steve Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Steve Kluger
There are popular celebrities, there are unpopular celebrities and then there are the walking dead. You know the walking dead when you see them: they look like Mel Gibson, still striving for drunken charm in an L.A. County mug shot, after getting picked up on a DWI charge that included anti-semitic slurs directed at the police. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
There are a lot of downsides to being male. We age faster and die younger. But give us this: we're lifetime baby-making machines. Women's reproductive abilities start to wane when they're as young as 35. Men? We're good to go pretty much till we're dead. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
The old idea, or rather the old prejudice, that women are protected by men was so deeply ingrained in that society that they overlooked what was the most obvious, that is, that the weakest and the disadvantaged are the most exposed. ~ Ruth Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Ruth Kluger
Never mind what you've heard. Halle Berry was not the first black woman to win an Academy Award for Best Actress. She was actually the 74th white one. And never mind all this talk about America electing its first black President; Barack Obama is actually the 44th white man to hold the job. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
All behavioral or mood disorders - including depression, OCD, ADHD and addiction - have some neurochemical components, but sufferers can still work to overcome them. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
What makes spinal-cord injuries as devastating as they are is that everything about them plays out in absolutes: they are instantaneous, utterly disabling and horribly permanent. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
There's plenty to read about keeping your sanity while raising children, but it's all common-sense stuff about task division and taking breaks and the relentlessly repeated magic of date night with your spouse. What's missing is some 'tude. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
There's a sort of sibling moratorium when you're establishing yourself as an adult. So much of your energy has to be focused on other things like work and kids. But when people become more settled, siblings tend to regroup because now you're building a new extended family. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Americans, from the beginning and throughout much of their history, were a warrior people when dealing with those who stood in their path. ~ Richard Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Richard Kluger
I fell on my feet and found my bearings because of these. I could talk to them. They listened and answered, for or against, but always weighing what they had heard, unlike my mother, who used language for manipulation, not to express an opinion or state a fact. What sounded like a fact might be a lie, and every opinion was tailored for the moment. ~ Ruth Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Ruth Kluger
Suffering is always hard to quantify - especially when the pain is caused by as cruel a disease as Alzheimer's. Most illnesses attack the body; Alzheimer's destroys the mind - and in the process, annihilates the very self. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
A child gets vaccinated and soon after, autism symptoms emerge. The apparent cause-and-effect is understandable but erroneous - more a coincidence of the calendar and childhood developmental stages than anything else, as repeated and exhaustive studies have shown. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Becoming food savvy is one thing, but it's amazing how fast savvy turns to snooty, and snooty leaves you preparing three-hour meals that break your budget and that the kids won't even eat. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
A jellyfish is little more than a pulsating bell, a tassel of trailing tentacles and a single digestive opening through which it both eats and excretes - as regrettable an example of economy of design as ever was. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
'Brand-Dropping' is the term that the Kluger Agency coined to describe discreetly advertising by product mentioning in song, and we feel we can make this the way of the future without jeopardizing any artist's creative outlet or typical style. ~ Adam Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Adam Kluger
My family went through divorces and remarriages and the later, blended home - and then watched that home explode, too. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
We're learning how important it is both to preserve sibling relationships if they work and repair them if they're broken. We're also learning a lot about nonliteral siblings - stepsiblings, half-siblings - and the surprising power they can have. ~ Jeffrey Kluger
Mcgivney And Kluger quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
Still, it had been a triumphal six-week tour. The nervy, smooth-talking governor had dispossessed the natives of 20,000 square miles without firing a shot. In return, the Indians were given nine reservations totaling about 93 square miles and promised $300,000 in hardware over the next two decades and a few vocational services. The U.S. government was subject to no penalties if it welshed on any of its promises. ~ Richard Kluger
