School House Rock

The other day, one of my coworkers asked me if I wanted to join a Government Relations Professional Networking group in Birmingham. You have to be asked, and it really involves upwardly mobile people interested in politics or working with politicians. Hmmm..

I considered it, and then laughed and told my friend/co-worker, "Thanks but, honestly - the level of conversation may be over my "School House Rocks" - "I'm Just A Bill" thought process."


I still know that song by heart.

Don't get me wrong, I understand our government. I took many, MANY classes - since I was a journalism major. I knew I needed to understand these items. I even campaigned for Obama. Not - "campaigned" like - I told my friends.. but CAMPAIGNED for Obama.

As tempting as it is, and an interesting idea to network..

BUT - I think I will pass.

That's crossing into a whole "other" world I am not sure I am comfortable with. I kind of like being on the outside of what's going on. Not so far removed that I don't know what's happening.. more so.. on the edge. I see it, I can touch it - I can smell - I can understand it. And I know enough to tell you all about it. But I don't want to be attached to it.

Kind of the reason I went into journalism in the first place.

But that got me to thinking about my favorite "commercials/psas" when I was a kid. School House Rock.

Here are some of my most memorable psas.. the ones I STILL know by heart. (PS - I have the cd. LOL)

What were your favorites?

Really?! I campaigned for President Obama in Birmingham too! I don't recognize you, though. What types of campaigning did you do?

I still remember sitting in 9th grade civics class taking an exam where we had to write the preamble to the Constitution and I'm singing the Schoolhouse Rock version of it quietly to myself as I'm writing. Fun post! Thanks for the memories!
