These days we need to go vote and to not elect idiots, there're a lot of them to choose from

Principal convinced by newspaper

“I had quite a cheeky moment back then, we were subscribed to the agriculture newspaper and I would send them poems and get books for that. And so I wrote them a question whether a school principal could ban me from studying at a high school. And that was in 1965, I finished in 1966. And the newspaper published a response stating that a principal could not decide whether I was allowed to study or not. And so I took the newspaper to school, the principal was boiling with anger, but it was a success. In 1966 I applied for admission to an engineering school, I passed the exams, at the time it was quite a premium school so there were loads of us.”
