Fun with political posters...On the Bush/Cheney re-election website, you could make a B/C poster with your own slogan at the top. That is until the oppostion started having some fun with it. The Bushies have now changed it so you can't add your own text. Bummer.
However, you can use this PDF to make your own poster. Click on the text above the logo, and fill in your own text. Note: Our server is scheduled to go down for maintenance at 5pm EST today, but until then, knock yourselves out. (Thanks to David for the PDF file)

No child left behind?According to this Miami Herald article, a study shows that students in schools with good media centers do significantly better on standardized tests. Here in Indiana, due to budget problems, school media centers have taken a big hit, which means we can look forward to lower scores on standardized tests. (Indiana schools were already hurting for school media specialists, and now we've lost the ones that we had...)
Also, my hometown was one of the few in the state that offered all-day kindergarten, but it was eliminated last year, just before my oldest niece was to start kindergarten. Her daycare center started an all-day kindergarten, so she hasn't been affected by it, but I worry about all the other kids who were not so lucky.
