Four amazing things

  • Apparently we still keep women out of some sports both to protect the fragile male ego and/or because of some antiquated worry that they'll damage their lady bits.

  • What corporations really think of capitalism: too much competition ruins everything. waaah!

  • Are we turning our kids' education into a Race to Nowhere? I sure hope not, but I can see where all the pressure comes from. Better to foster a love of learning than a fear of not living up, but perhaps best to remember that there are other things important in life, often more so.

  • Here's a really blog about homelessness/unemployment from one parent's real-time perspective. An alarmingly easy condition to stumble into, hard to dig out of.
