Is it spring break yet?

Geez, not for another two weeks! The good news is, once the break is over, summer vacation is right around the corner. One of the benefits of being a teacher is that one never loses that kid-like anticipation of summer arriving! I love it!

Heading to my cousin's son's barmitzvah (hope that's spelled right) this morning. Then, me and a few of my close teaching colleagues are getting together for a "fellas" night of food, beer and ... bowling!! Yep, that's what married, early 40-somethings do on their weekends, occasionally. In the meantime, chew on these tidbits:

In Delaware:

  • Politakid notes how Green congressional candidate Michael Berg is using an image of his son's execution in his campaign. That's some class, all right.
  • Mike Mahaffie is hoping to get a local nature preserve named after an old friend of his.
  • Ryan's "Hero and Hack" of the week feature is up. Immigration is the topic.
  • Delathought has a tribute up to departed Caspar Weinberger. Yours truly had to "set the record straight," so to speak, about Nicaragua in the comments. But that's not surprising.

Elsewhere:

  • Avi Green's excellent blog Four Color Media Monitor deals with comics and politics. He dissects Marvel's new "Civil War" introduction and notes how Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada and writer Mark Millar are letting their biases run rampant. Quesada's knowledge of history is ... "sketchy," to say the least. He thought that the US conducted nuclear tests in the Pacific during World War II, and thought that the US military is majority black. I've already posted about Millar.
  • Soccer Dad utilizes the "way back machine" to discuss the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
  • Greg at Rhymes With Right, a high school social studies teacher, posts about some of what he told his [heavily Latino populated] class regarding a possible "walk out" protest. The immigration debate, y'know.
  • In the annals of ridiculous lawsuits comes one regarding eHarmony -- you know, that online dating service? Well, a not-yet-divorced man is suing the co. because it refused to list him ... 'cause he's still married.
  • Lastly, the always well-written John Rosenberg has an instant classic up for your brain to ponder.

Have a nice Saturday!

Yep. And here's an elementary grammar lesson: It's "you're" when you are making a statement like yours above.
