Scary Kid’s Books

Posted by in Children's Literature, Education

In what is conceptually a violent form of suicide, the Rainbow Fish relents and plucks out his scales and gives them one by one to all the demanding fish on the reef. “The Rainbow Fish” is a toxic diatribe which teaches that exceptionalism is unfair, and that those with something special literally OWE everyone else a piece of themselves.


Vietnam: Armistice of the Soul

Posted by in Religion, Veterans, Vietnam War

He lectured me like an uncle, reminding me that both our countries had lied to us, that I must go forward and be happy, for we had survived things most people can’t imagine. He had noticed the anger in me, I believe. We parted with brotherly hugs and handshakes, and I felt better inside that day than I had in years.


Halloween: Two Sides of the Masque

Posted by in Children, Culture, Holidays

Halloween being widely accepted as an appropriate party-time for teens and adults of all ages, summons untoward tendencies for vandalism, theft, and public drunkenness in some who use revelry and anonymity as cloaks for their crimes.

A Dead Scoundrel is Still a Scoundrel

Posted by in Commentary, humor

One techie after another is coming forth and declaring that he/she could have built a site for Obamacare for $5 million, or $1 million, or less than a million, and could have made it work better.

Posted by in Education

The best U.S. public schools — including those with high numbers of poor and minority kids — require more of students than state standards and Common Core, and school leaders attribute their success partly to these high expectations.


The Disturbing Discipline Problems in Public Schools

Posted by in Abnormal Psychology, Economy

Instead of punishment or suspension for the kids in the ED classroom, their behavioral problems must be “accommodated,” and their classrooms “modified” to meet their needs. In many cases, these kids throw the entire learning environment into chaos, yet because they have an ED designation governed by Special Education law, it is exceedingly difficult to either punish them, suspend them from school, or hold parents to account for the havoc wreaked by their kids.


School Reform Leads to Innovation and Excellence in Douglas County

Posted by in Colorado Politics, School Reform

Douglas County may or may not be the most interesting school district in America, but it is certainly one of the more innovative ones. And voters have a chance to keep it that way.


Old Sarge: Jesus and Other Heroes

Posted by in Religion, Ronald Reagan

Arland could have tied the rope around himself as it dangled near him, but time and again, he passed the rope to another passenger who was still alive.
