Cruisin' the Blogs

Everyone's favorite "reformer," Michelle Rhee, wants to put a bunch of teachers on a 90-day program before firing them. But PREA Prez Fred Klonsky doesn't much care for the fact she doesn't want to tell anyone who those teachers are.

EdNotes Online offers a very insightful thought for Ms. Rhee and her ilk.

Young Adolph Hitler Campbell's parents couldn't get those spoilsports at Shop-Rite to put his name on a cake. Now Joanne Jacobs writes state protective services have removed Adolph, along with his sisters Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie.

Miss Cellania, perhaps growing weary of the Campbell saga, offers some comic relief about baby names.

Sluggish students? Going Today offers a fine looking bugle guaranteed to get their attention, today only for $49.95. You can save a few bucks with one of these, but it may not be as effective.

Johny McCain has put the kibosh on wife Cindy's plans to appear on Dancing with the Stars. McCain staffers claimed the show wasn't mavericky enough.

I love quotes. Mamacita at Scheiss Weekly offers a whole page of them every Saturday, and today is no exception. Today she's featuring quotes from women, and here's one I really like:

–Jane Wagner

Small Talk marvels at a New York Post editorial commemorating the "freedom" of charter schools to not unionize. As usual, the rights of working people mean nothing whatsoever to Murdoch's mouthpieces.

A literate student of Miss Malarkey offers some crucial advice.

And make no mistake--spelling counts.

Last but not least, my friend and occasional guest blogger Yo Miss (formerly in Bushwick) has rechristened herself Miss Eyre and started her very own blog: Life in the Morton School. She's a great writer, so check it out.
