I wasn't arguing that a contract with a professional photographer means anything to people attending, just that they have the ability to restrict vendors to these events. The student running around taking pictures and then selling them online could be construed as acting as a vendor.

This does make things a little more fuzzy. I wouldn't be surprised if a local professional photographer was already given an exclusive contract to sell photos. I doubt that vendors can just attend an event and sell something like hot dogs for instance without some kind of agreement.

Agree one hundred percent, typing has been given short shrift. In 8th grade we had a whole year of typing on IBM Selectrics. In addition to touch typing we learned a lot about proper letter formats and things of that nature. I am sure they could throw in a lot of relevant stuff about word processing software, but they don't offer typing now- at least at my children's school.

You should review your history a bit- from wikipedia:

In 1951 Mohammad Mosaddegh was elected prime minister. He became enormously popular in Iran after he nationalized Iran's petroleum industry and oil reserves. He was deposed in the 1953 Iranian coup d'état, an Anglo-American covert operation that marked the first time the US had overthrown a foreign government during the Cold War.[92]

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
