Today: Hutch was invited to be the official newshound of Grays Harbor Down. Pretty cool stuff!
Someone’s cutting onions up in here.
“Letter to a Teacher from an Aboriginal Parent (1977)” – if you’re a human being, you should read this.
The trouble with kids today. OK, there’s so much to love about this post. I cringe-laugh at the Connery interview. I know I shouldn’t feel bad for him, publicly airing his ignorance and fear, but I kind of do. And it’s ironic our macho, best Bond (well, I like all the Bonds, but got a soft spot for Mr. Connery) is in reality a frightened person, who hits and then justifies hitting as making sense. But I really liked all the quotes at the bottom. “Get off my lawn”, the world is going to the dogs, “kids today”, et cetera. Good stuff.
Some comments on the MSM’s depiction of Mr. Holmes, who last week murdered people in a theater in Colorado.
A piece on Spiritual Bypass; a concept I’ve been thinking about a lot, lately. Good stuff.
Who Gets To Be A Geek? Anyone Who Wants To Be by John Scalzi – a great piece (except for the obligatory hipster-diss – what is UP with that?). ANYhoo, a wonderful takedown of Peacock’s crap.
& finally: NEVER FORGET
I don’t think that the hipster reference was a sign of disrespect, but merely stating part of what it means to be a hipster 🙂
*and* What is up with the coconut sound effect when Kirk’s ass hits the deck? Huh?
If it wasn’t a hipster-diss, it’s the first time I’ve ever heard a non-hipster diss. LOL.
0:19 – thank you for pointing that out. Maybe Kirk had a can of Copenhagen in his polyester space-pants & it popped?
Thank you for the 1977 Letter. This line socked me in the gut:
Will you teach my child to learn to read, or will you teach him that he has a reading problem? May I never compromise the dignity of a student.
I loved that letter & found that even though it’s 35 years old it is still entirely relevant, if not more so, for children in today’s schools.
