I used to hate when my “CHECK ENGINE” light came on,
Because it usually meant that I was about to lose money.
Now I’m a bit older, and finances seem to matter less,
But I got to thinking about the light and the car and the moving parts within,
And how they…
Diane Ravitch on The Daily Show.
Ravitch is the queen. If only the government would listen…
We would also address poverty directly. We would increase the minimum wage and make post-secondary education cheap or free, and we’d improve improve unemployment benefits and offer free job-training to the unemployed.
Poverty is one of the few social ills where throwing money at the problem really does seem to work.
These are not radical, liberal ideas. In fact, in Europe most of them are associated with the more conservative parties, and many of them were associated with the American Republican party in the 80s.

A sponge is the most under-appreciated of
Common household items.

Russian imperial era inspired because hot damn.

OMG that’s the cutest thing ever and the best courtly love ah so brilliant.
Few romantic heroes could do better.
I don’t post cats often but that illustration.
Hey there loyal followers, and I mean that in the most humble way possible. I’m still relatively new to this online community, so I’m not sure if I’ll get responses. I realize that I haven’t posted anything in a while, so I think it would be appropriate…
