Leaving the country when I was seven and never coming back. DAD OF THE YEAR.
Transportation. The concept of blogging would have to illuminated somewhat, since he didn’t really live to see its development. My father would be appalled and/or amazed by today’s technology. The things that have happened since 2005…some of them I’m glad he didn’t live to see.
Needed to post this rant. This whole issue has been covered much better by Anna Minard, former student at my old high school, The Center School:
If you’ll recall, Center School humanities teacher Jon Greenberg’s curriculum came under fire this spring after a family complained to the district that his race and social justice unit made their kid uncomfortable, and the district responded with surprising vehemence by suspending the class’s curriculum and sending it to a review committee. But after all the fuss, the district reinstated the class with a few recommendations—and reassured the public that they’re totally committed to talking about race and social justice issues. (They’re currently under federal investigation forracial disparities in their discipline practices, a story that broke right in the middle of this curriculum dustup.)
Ironically, the school and this curriculum then went on to win a citywide award for “encouraging dialogue around race, gender and class.”
Nothing caps off a long workweek quite like a corgi in the midst of an embarrassing physical mishap. So here is a good one, in all of its resplendence, with the charming backdrop of a rustic campsite. There’s nothing like the majestic canine back in the wilds from which it came â that’s precisely why Henry David Thoreau was inspired to pen his award-winning sequel Walden 2: Corgi Ass.
