[ Posted Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012 – 18:00 UTC ]

At times it feels to rank-and-file teachers like the wealth and power of the entire nation is aligned against them. For me personally, May 7, 2012 was one of those times.

Friday Talking Points [202] -- Seamus, That's The Dog, Was Outside

[ Posted Friday, March 16th, 2012 – 17:46 UTC ]

Merry Politically-Correct-mas?

[ Posted Monday, December 26th, 2011 – 17:29 UTC ]

[Program Note: We're going to have a week of frivolity here at this week. Partly, this is so I can work on other projects, and partly it's because nobody's in the mood for politics this time of year anyway (Iowans aside...). To start us off, here's a blast from the past, a [...]
