Q&A with David Pike: Helping others learn how to learn

April 9, 2013

David Pike teaches Earth Science at the Mojave River Campus of the Academy for Academic Excellence/Lewis Center in Apple Valley.

He was born in the mid-1960s at a hospital down the street from Disneyland in Anaheim. Back in those days, Orange County was mostly a collection of strawberry fields and oil wells and suburban lawns and new freeways and parking lots. He went with his family to Huntington Beach, Seal Beach and got tar balls on our feet. They shopped at Sav-On, and Stater Bros. and Zodys and saved their Blue Chip Stamps.

An alarming announcement to fatties who travel was made by Samoan Airlines last week. They’ve decided to charge passengers by the pound — or in their case, the kilo.

Yes, you and your luggage will be weighed at the airport terminal and fees assessed at the time of departure. “It is the only fair way” to charge fees for excess weight that costs the airlines more fuel to fly, according to the airline’s president — who weighs 160 pounds dripping wet, I’ll wager.
