What I’ve been reading at nytimes.com this week

I can’t wait to read the Vena Cava blog.

I love Brussels sprouts.

The more I think about it, the more upset I am about this.

I’m so glad this is not my life.

The achievement gap is even wider between high-income high-achieving whites and high-income high-achieving blacks.

Let’s get more in-depth about how the stimulus will help schools that serve low-income students.  This is a start.

The sketchy 7-5 keeping another innocent man behind bars.  Justice is a joke.

The Morning Stimulus

By googling “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act” I found this website created by a bevy of red-staters and citizens against big government/spending on social services.  I’m not interested in what the Heritage Foundation thinks about the bill, but they and their accomplices have made full text available and easily searchable.  And I’m thinking that when they say “$850 Billion, 1588 pages, and counting…somebody needs to read it!” they mean me right?  and my teacher friends? so we can rub our little hands together in greed that NCLB is going to be funded for the first time?  oh, yeah, OK, sounds like a plan.

There is a congressional “discussion” draft available here in PDF, but without a search function.  But it might work for you if just seeing logos like these (below) throws you into a fit of fury, cause, you know, rich people should keep getting richer, and poor people should pull themselves up by their bootstraps, right? Oh and don’t forget to be “colorblind!”  Because racism stopped existing after the Civil Rights Movement!




Keep your friends close and your enemies closer!
