DIDJA SEE THE CIRCUS? And I don't mean the circus outside the YUM! Center made up of PETA protesters. We took Q to the circus on Saturday and I was very surprised at how far the circus has come since I was a kid. If you have the chance next time to catch it, you should, if only to irritate the PETA protesters outside. It's truly a great show and a great experience.
DIDJA SEE THIS CIRCUS? A huge long story about how an accounting change magically put a bunch of JCPS schools into compliance for the desegregation plan that is in place because JCPS thinks proving they are stuck in the 1970's is what's important to people. So if all these schools are magically in compliance, they must magically be lowering the achievement gap and magically reducing the dropout rate for black students, right?
TERRY MEINERS DOESN'T TAKE HIS WIFE OUT TO LUNCH If you caught this article in the C-J, you'll see Mrs. Meiners eating at her desk. Shame on Terry Meiners for making her do this! It is kind of interesting that the work environment has changed so much that people don't have time for lunch anymore. It's a shame because some of my most productive team building at work happened at lunch. Raises a question: how has YOUR work environment changed?
JOURNALISM LOSES A BIG ONE Mike Wallace was the kind of guy you did NOT want to see knocking on your door uninvited. He's dead at 93 and the world has lost another one who understood the role of the hard nosed journalist in this world. I worry that his genre of news is going to be completely replaced by the infotainment that now passes for journalism on many news channels.
MAYBE PETA GOT TO THEM Polar bears are losing their fur.
