I'm actually writing tonight! So, instead of a substantive blog post, here's a couple of interesting links:
- The latest on Conroygate in the local public schools. The committee has read Beach Music and has recommended that it be allowed in class, but with a warning sticker on the front, alerting parents of the contents. The Board of Education didn't officially act on the recommendation yet, but they appear to be in support. It's a solution that doesn't look to really please anybody. And we all know how kids react when they see "explicit content" warnings do to kids' desire to read something!
- Alex Zanardi is one of my heroes, for all these reasons. Over the weekend, he picked up another one - finishing fourth in the hand-powered cycle class in the New York Marathon. It was his first marathon and done after one month of training!
. . . well, except for this: Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) are feckless spineless jackasses who don't deserve the continued support of anyone who believes in the rule of law.
OK, that's really all.
