I haven't updated for a while. The new school year has begun, so I'm rather busy attempting to remember names. Actively pining for some of the folks that have left takes up a bit of time too.

North Carolina Governor Mike Easley, on the utter pointlessness of the constant standardized testing of students. Gee, ya think someone else would notice that we test kids more than we teach 'em. Good job, Mike!
