America the Beautiful...

This blog is about education and teaching, period. I think too many educators' blogs become, at times, overwrought with political rants and ideological banterings. However, because I think it important enough to do so, and without gushing (or sobbing) with my own liberal, conservative and/or moderate views, I interupt this blog for a brief note about the election.

This country is amazing, if not always perfect.

I love politics. A lot. Way too much. Election Night is like my every-four-years Superbowl (which I guess would make it more like the Olympics or the World Cup, but I'm trying to keep this American-ey here). As I sat there drinking my 6-7 fingers of scotch (whether in celebration or in sorrow I won't say) I had to thank God I was born here. HERE. And, with all its worts and scars (which, at times, are horrid), and with all its imperfections (of which there are many), the system here in the United States (both political and economic) continues, daily, to amaze me with its flexibility, its fortitude, and its basic soundness.

That is all.

Now back to your regularly scheduled blog.
