absenteeists — monotheists

Thanks for that. You probably read Calvin Trillin too.

First, Maggie Gyllenhaal does nothing wrong, ever.
Second, that article begins by bashing Hollywood as ultra-liberal as then expressing surprise that the movie got made? Why, they made Titanic, that doesn’t mean they hate ships. Hollywood isn’t really a bastion of any particular thing other than social liberalism (which is associated with liberalism, but not necessarily Unions). There are lots of different issue stances within that which is considered the American left, but romantic ones about individuality and kids being set free to learn under the tutelage of young, poorly paid but enthusiastic believers? That’s totally Hollywood.

If you had told me that Hollywood was doing a feature length film about dispelling myths about charter schools and explaining how the mean is calculated, then yeah, I’d be flabbergasted.

School reform is a bi-partisan issue. The guy who produced “An Inconvenient Truth” produced “Waiting For Superman.”

BTW, if you haven’t seen “Waiting For Superman” please do. Everyone should watch it before voting on the amendment this November.

Deal lawyer goes after accuser for legal fees

Best part: ” Evans said he has not yet calculated how much money Anderson should pay. The Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission could take up the issue at its next meeting ”

That sounds about right. Probably will head the agenda.

Maybe global warming (whether human-caused or not) isn’t really an issue.
