Just Gasping...

For those of you who still check this blog (thank you!), I just wanted to let you know that it is not dead, just gasping for air right now because I'm so busy with student teaching, classes, and life in general. However, I have enjoyed just bothering people on their own blogs, and continue to enjoy being part of this community.

I do have one issue to talk about from student teaching, however (no, I'm not going to rip on DSTP - that will probably come after I have to help proctor them next week). A lot of students know a lot about what is going on - and that's great. However, far too many have no clue about what is happening in the world right now. I urge everyone in the blogging community to talk about what you do with young people, and encourage them to become politically active (even if it is on the wrong side...lol). I know it goes against our better inclinations, but try not to be too biased when you do it, either. Young people should have the opportunity to think for themselves, just as we all have. Try to stick to the facts, and not the Bill O'Riley version of the facts either (or the Maureen Dowd version, just to be fair).

Alright, I'm off my soapbox for now. Don't give up on me! I hope to start updating more regularly.
