Do you know about the racial inequalities in Special Education?

It is astounding.

Come to ARA this Tuesday (the 28th) to learn more, eat a free meal, and hear the new all-star* education professor, Dr. Wanda Ward, speak about this topic.

That is about all.  A shameless plug for a&e.

Enjoy the day, it is a beautiful one.  Maybe I’ll enjoy it with a long walk.

 

*She and Nancy are the only education professor I enjoy and respect.

firstly: happy ground hog day.

there have been a lot of fiascos in the past few days; let them stop now.

last night, i was reflecting on how i think i have wasted the majority of my college days. this best manifests itself in the fear that i will have no stories to tell my grandchildren about my ‘crazy college days’.  yet this problem seems to solve itself; for the reason i have no stories from my college years is that i have not embraced life to the fullest and have not experienced the world.  hence i have not dated.  hence i will not marry.  hence i will not procreate.  hence no grandchildren.  therefore, i have no need for stories.

i then realised that an aspect of my experience at north park i am quiteproud of is my knowledge of hot dog restaurants on the northside of the city.  yet this problem also solves itself, for in the process of creating this knowledge, i have raised my blood pressure and cholesterol to terminally unhealthy levels.  hence no grandchildren; or, at the very least, none before my tired tired heart gives out.

there is a chance that my summer habit of biking had a redemptive effect, but culinary situations like the bacon grease incident beg to differ.
