Commentary, by AMB
Back at MHS, AMB worked on the weekly
that was printed in the school basement by Mr.
Kenneth Armel's print shop "boys." For
nine months (1967-68), AMB edited the little
paper and sometimes wrote "editorials."
The editorials were always inane and pointless.
Since 1998, she has maintained this web site for
and about MHS '68 folks, entirely at her expense
At 71 years old,
with the USA in the disaster of 2021, AMB has
decided to offer up her opinions of 2021,
opinions influenced greatly by Mishawaka school
teachers of the 1950s and 1960s. Those Mishawaka
teachers who helped to shape AMB were Mary Hess, Ken Armel, Charles Karst, Thelma Martin, Ward Baker, August Baetsle, Marvin Wood, Bruce Chamberlin, Suzanne Kamm, Mildred Harden, Merle Blue, Robert Heck, and John Chelminiak, all from MHS; Robert Ernst, Judith Jones, Fred Buechner, and Edwin Metzler from Main Jr. High; Lester Ward and Evelyn (Rarick)
Battell; and Margaret Schenck, from North Side.
every one of those teachers would be shocked at
the USA of 2021, where viable unborn babies are
butchered, where their body parts are sold, where
men pretend that they are women and show up in
women's locker rooms swinging their ding-dongs
and calling them "female penises," and
where "journalists" gaslight us daily.
In a few weeks, there will be a link here to
AMB's commentary on the USA of 2021. Perhaps I'll
be talking to a wall, but the words will appear,
and I'll recall my Mishawaka teachers and growing
up in Mishawaka as I assemble the words.
