This is truly a got nuthin' week. And it's a shame, because with a little more time I would have liked to post about threatening grievous bodily harm upon a line-breaking second grader and her do-nothing dad, the slice-of-life goodness complete with pit bulls on flimsy leashes that is Selma's Railroad Days, and the fact that Batman has taken up permanent residence in our home.

But alas, work has been from hell, I haven't even had a decent lunch break to read other blogs, much less formulate my own, and when I get home I'm TIRED, dammit. The additional Batman wrangling is wearing me down as well.

Related note to self: Although you would think that "putting a blanket over your head and leaping blindly from a great height" is a self-evidently bad plan, you do need to spell that out to a four-year-old. Repeatedly. Perhaps I should put one of those # of days without a broken bone counters on my blog, because obviously it's just a matter of time.

SO. Here's some food for thought, kiddies. If education schools are vetting folks for being proper GoodThinkers before allowing them to teach, what do you think the end result will be? Here's a clue - don't look for our math/science scores to improve anytime soon, as everyone is too concerned with politics in ed theory to bother making sure that these future teachers can actually, you know, teach.
