About What's On My Mind

Previous Entry What's On My Mind Oct. 1st, 2009 @ 10:57 am Next Entry
  • Wow, this is pretty much the perfect response to someone who wants to ban (or restrict access to) children's books with gay themes.
  • Can anything else go wrong with the upcoming movie production of The Hobbit? Oh, you betcha!
  • If you didn't read this article on kids coming out in middle school, you should.
  • Thomas Friedman has been wrong about a lot of things in the last eight years (*cough* Iraq War *cough*). But he's right about this, which is pretty much the country's number one problem. Problem is, he doesn't say the obvious: this is 99% the fault of the Republicans, who, thanks to Karl Rove (and Lee Atwater before him), chose this as a deliberate political strategy.
It's all cool,

middle school article

Thanks, Brent.
This article will help me with one of my WIPs. But more importantly, it put a smile on my face hearing those middle school students speak so candidly. I taught school for fifteen years and know how hard it is to buck the tide of degrading comments, and to deal with the wolf-pack mentality that can quickly take form in a school.

I still can't quite get over how much the world has changed IN MY LIFETIME. Bizarre.
