OK… so here are the articles and my notes:
First of all, there’s the Testing issue.
Quote from Wizbang:
With the federal government’s permission, schools aren’t counting the test scores of nearly 2 million students when they report progress by racial groups, an Associated Press computer analysis found.
Minorities – who historically haven’t fared as well as whites in testing – make up the vast majority of students whose scores are being excluded, AP found. And the numbers have been rising.
…and then there’s the latest on Cindy Sheehan. (commence eye-rolling)
Nearly two years after his tragic death in Iraq, Casey Sheehan’s mom Cindy is blaming others for the fact that his grave site is unmarked after all this time.
…Two years later and there’s still no permanent headstone, because Cindy’s too busy cuddling up to the likes of Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, and Hugo Chavez, though she still has time to pose for pictures on Casey’s grave site.
