An Unfortunate Coincidence of Names

Prufrock Press “is the nation’s leading resource for gifted and talented children and gifted education programs”. I hope the name is not a literary allusion. Gifted and talented children have enough trouble with accusations of nerdliness and worse: they really don’t need to be associated with J. Alfred Prufrock, who couldn’t decide whether he dared to eat a peach or whether he should “wear white flannel trousers and walk upon the beach”.

    Mr. Hendry me and Thomas take that offensively because we’re both in gifted and talented and i am most definitly NOT a NERD. If i was i would probably have better grades then i do right now…lol.
