I went and read. I just don't know what to say. Even if I did say something I would just want to scream it anyway. Ugh!!!!

So what would we do with old literature? Never read it again...or translate it?? In any case nothing will come of this. It reminds me of the brief push to have ebonics taught and accepted by school districts.

My own spelling btw is atrocious. Thank goodness for computers, Word, and spell check!

You have to laugh. If you don't laugh, you'll just cry.

Dumbing down: 90% complete...

Peace and Laughter,

Hey, I'm all for it, as long as they agree to make math simpler, too. Because I'm good at spelling, but horrible with numbers. Why is it no one ever wants to make my difficult subjects easier? ;(
