I do have something to say today, after all. I just finished a short, but inspirational memoir called Educating Esme, Diary of a Teacher's First Year.This wonderful young teacher taught 5th graders in an urban setting her first year, and the book is warm, touching, delightful.This is how it . . .
I’m all for celebrating independence and I love the Fourth of July – it’s such a happy and uniquely American holiday. Ballpark franks on the grill and potato salad outside in the yard; fireworks at night.It kind of marks midsummer (even though technically, it isn’t) , and it’s the only time I think . . .

I love Michael K. From dlisted.com. I quote his blog below, and it is worth the 10 minutes to see this clip. It's ...surreally funny ... I mean, you don't know whether to laugh or laugh harder. Trust me. You'll enjoy this. This is serious. The inmates at Cebu Prison in the Philippines became world . . .
My dear Republican friends, I simply can not resist this......you must excuse me this ode, which came to mind after a discussion with FLH about Glenn Beck. With apologies to Mr. Ginsberg, may he rest in peace. I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed byRepublican madness, Mormons starving . . .
I'm hiding out upstairs in my office; the drone of the vacuum cleaner is making me crazy. I'm usually the maid service's first clean of the day, but today I'm second and they didn't get here till 11:15. It's too noisy to read; I've printed out some documents for our trip, and now I'm so desperate . . .
I watched the latest episode of the NJ Housewives last night, and I'm here to tell you that the Lord of the Flies has got nothing on these women. Unbelievable.Women can be mean, cruel and gratuitously so. It's not very attractive.Last night, the "family" outed Danielle as a coke whore, stripper, . . .
Republicans are out of control.The idiocy that is Glenn Beck weighed in on the Sotomayor nomination with the usual, intelligent comment we hear routinely from right wing fringe. "Hey, Hispanic chick lady! You're empathetic ... you're in!" There is so much wrong with this statement that I don't know . . .
