Lileks and His Old School

James Lileks makes his annual trek to his hometown of Fargo, North Dakota and visits his old elementary school:
I don’t think I’ve been inside since I left sixth grade. Last I heard, one of my favorite teachers was the principal; I had an odd idea I might run into him. The door was open. Inside everything from the rooms was heaped in the hallway: renovations, cleaning, painting, preparations. I checked the office, explained my mission: I’d missed him. By a year. Could I look around, take some pictures?

Sure, said the nice lady. This was Fargo, after all.
