My first spout has to be education related, so here's a piece I wrote recently on the wave of book bans.

"A fictionalized account of Capote’s split with his high society patrons and friends, Capote Vs. The Swans smells of escargot and chardonnay and cashmere and fine leather but most of all it reeks of death, only some of it social."

I wrote about Capote Vs. The Swans, a series that serves as entertainment, nostalgia, and a powerful reminder that we have only one wild and precious life.

Contender for sentence of the day: "America is a sticky-fingered nation built on stolen land, and its current moral panic is about shoplifting."

Yes, this one example got blown up, but folks would be a good deal more reasonable about how corporations price their products if they paid their taxes and workers fairly.

I can guarantee it, or your money back!

Every exit interview should ask, “What seems normal to us here, but shouldn’t?”

It bears repeating since it keeps happening: headlines about a "looming government shutdown" instead of about "GOP threats to shut down government" aren't just biased against Democrats. They are biased against government.

IOW, we will be bailing out the automakers again and it will be because they spent the past decade-plus focused on bloated, overpriced vehicles.

Yes, they are going after the Pill next. Take it from the guy who keeps telling us what their culture war targets and rights rollbacks will be in advance.

Little about this example is unique to baseball jerseys. Industry consolidation and underregulation mean consumers are paying more for crappier products across product categories.

"As long as economic growth is linked to polluting industries, it will come at the cost of human health. As such, we live in a world where economic downturns can paradoxically save lives. But a country powered by clean energy could presumably prosper economically without killing people prematurely."

Given recent news (e.g. re IVF in AL and abortion exceptions in TN), I'm reposting this piece from last May about what the right's plans are for marriage.

"When we know more, this story may grow be more complicated, but won’t change that Nex should be alive, that attacking trans kids is wrong, that this story is thundering back and forth across the minds of so many young people and their families right now. It can happen. It is real."

Is there a word (like mansplaining) for these kinds of articles that explain how to do something that doesn’t require any explanation at all?

As the right rolls back laws on child labor and restarts forcing children to give birth, this corporal punishment case is another reminder of longstanding abusive laws and practices they uphold.

“There has never been a moment when I couldn’t accept my son for who he is; why can’t private schools [esp. those marketing as special needs schools]? Education is a human right, and public schools, open to all, are the guardians of this right. What privatizers call choice does not really exist.”

Now if we could just make this happen in the US, that would be the end of "school choice."

This sort of preemptive submission out of fear is a big part of how fascism wins.

I don't like told-you-so posts, but this is one.

65% of teachers "reported restricting instruction on 'political and social issues.' This is nearly double the percentage of teachers who reported actually being subject to state laws that restrict discussion of race, sex and gender in the classroom."

My niece Sasha Winkler is one of the co-authors of the study this (gifted) article is based on.

Zoom snow days are a terrible idea. We can blame the pandemic for training educators on videoconferencing, but Zoom snow days wouldn't exist without the construct of "days of learning," ranking children by test scores, and stoking fear about being "behind."
