Things I’d like to share with you:
I found this really cool publication that some of you Texans might like: The Texas Independent. In other Texas news, Senate Bill 6 allows state money to be spent on supplementary instructional materials that have not been approved by the School Board, which is cool because it might give schools and teachers the chance to teach, you know, actual history.
For a few days, I managed not to read anything about the new Sarah Palin book. That was cool. I’m not even going to link here to any of the stuff I inevitably accidentally came across. I have also managed to avoid stories about the doomed jobs bill. I honestly believe this Congress combined with this President will not ever be able to get anything done so I’m not going to torture myself (or you) with worrying about it. I am worried about jobs. Just not about the jobs bill.
I have still not managed to see any of the horror movies that are out that I want to see. Are they good? I did finally watch Paul (which shows you how behind I am), a hilarious alien-encounter movie. It contains lots of nice shout outs to the afficionados. Worth a watch.
I published a review of whether Trojan Woman (after Euripides) at the Getty Villa is feminist or not.
I’ve almost given up getting you to talk back. But I have been told I’m stubborn and would hate to disappoint. So tell me, what did you read/see/do/learn/think of interest this week?
