Pop quiz:

Just about everybody knows that the NY Yankees have won the most Championship games in MLB... which team holds the number two spot?

Keep up the good work with the Braves. A sweep would be nice.

MY TRUE READING LIST
1. The World Through Arab Eyes (Currently Reading, Interesting)
2. Banished (Westboro Baptist Church))- Last Week (Kinda Blah)
3. Unbroken (WW II Survival True Story) & The Life Of PI (Highly Recommend)- About two weeks ago.
.. books I'm working through, may take months, even years ..
1. Caesar & Christ - Will Durant
2. Life of Greece - Will Durant
3. The Power of Myth - Joseph Campbell
.. you're spot-on in your assessment. Only thing missing? A parent should also be a teacher. There seems to be an erroneous perception that schools are entirely responsible for a child's education ..
.. anyway, I'm only here to try to convince Sister Lust of the erotic worth of scarves and to say, "Bush will go down in history as one of the worst U.S. Presidents." Fundamentalists will insist he's in heaven ..
I'm quite familiar with the erotic use of scarves. However, that knowledge isn't something I want a public school teacher imparting to my 17 year old.

Hi Les. Glad you're happy. I agree with you on Bush, and submit that Obama is no better, though possibly worse.

Timshel.

.. with free porn over the internet, by age 17, most teens know about scarves and much more ..

.. I'm not much of a political animal. My take? The vast majority of politicians are crooks. If someone realizes the position of Senator or President, well, ahhhhh, they've been bought and paid for ..

It’s the flame that drives our willingness to fight in the face of certain defeat and/or death.’’

While I truly believe that capitalism is the best economic system available, I believe the article linked below
http://io9.com/5967858/the-bayou-corne-sinkho...
begs the following questions:
How much longer do we have the luxury of utilizing fossil fuels, while technologies exist which make them unnecessary for our industries, except as a function of the size of financial profit for the very few?
For how much longer are we as a species going to be this arrogant?
How long will this planet tolerate our presence, before shaking us off like a bad case of fleas?
And when will we learn that this is the only environment we have, and that defecating where one eats is a bad idea?
(Included in the article, is a very interesting video clip, involving the incredibly rapid disappearance of several large trees...even if one cares nothing about man's collateral damage to the environment, it's worth a watch.)
Duuuhh! Worthless troll!

Course one can't expect much else from a conspiracy theory zombie.

Well, our government doesn't listen to us. We protested a lot to stop the Iraq war. Students protested to stop the increase in university tuition fee. Yh, so they protest a lot in England, didn't really achieve much. Maybe the American government is more moral!
So when is your government going to release the unlawfully detained prisoners in Guantanamo Bay?
Worst!

<quoted text>It seems that the Federally funded 'Common Core' program, however, has gone to the opposite extreme.'Approving' what amounts to the diary of a pedophile, fictional or no, for reading material in an 11th grade literature class? Setting up the framework for a lit teacher to require the class to read it? Even as a life-long opponent of book-banning, I'm not okay with that. There's a line, and that book most assuredly crosses it, IMO. We might as well make the Marquis De Sade a staple of high school libraries. Perhaps we should start offering "The Anarchist's Cookbook" as a science text, as well?
I won't say you all don't have valid points here and there. At the same time I think the reactions are....reactionary;) such as describing a book one hasn't read beyond excerpts as a pedophile's diary. If the best art is that which provokes a reaction, well, there ya go.

But I get it too, you all ain't condemning the book per se, but questioning it's value on a high school reading list. I ask myself, why did the author include such scenes in what is otherwise a morality tale about self-worth and misplaced ideals? I dunno. Artists - Go figger. Maybe she knows that the prurient stuff grabs our attention (don't it tho'?), while in meantime her true theme can hopefully osmotically sink in.

In any case, at the practical level, it is one book on an entire reading list. The vast majority don't read at all. I can't see the few 17 yr old that do read being harmed by it. Really, what do we envision might happen? I don't think we want to give them credit for the maturity to place it in perspective. I think treating our teens like children is a big reason so many ARE immature. Beyond that, if a teacher chooses to include it in the syllabus, now at least they're guided thru by an educator rather than reading it "in the dark", as it were.

'Cos guess what? Sure as there's ice cream trucks in July, there's a whole host of kids of all ages who would have never heard of this book before the late brouhaha, and now they're going to be looking for it just to read the hot stuff that's got the 'rents all verklempt.

I've never felt threatened by free artistic expression, and resented adults who thought I needed "protected" from it. I feel the same for my three kids. It was our job to raise them with balance and positive self-image, and then shoo them from the nest with heartache and hope. I think a 17 yr old Lit student can handle it. There's art that I consider crap, so I ignore it,'cos Art can only be buried by indifference and neglect. Any attention - good or bad - is the very best way to ensure it's widest possible circulation. It's a conundrum, fer shur, but it seems that's one of the "blessings" of a free society.

In my most humble opinion;)
