Digging Out, Slowly

It's the end of the semester and I continue to live in Grading Hell. (Yes, I've pretty much done it to myself.) And since I'm deep in assignments, projects, tests, and (often amusing) attempts at extra credit, I think I should put this sign on my office door. You should see some of the (tragically) fun stuff I get to read. Lots and lots of it. I'm still stuck in this place, but I should have a little time to post soon. Pray for me.

Do you plan to grade the NOLA bloggers too. I expect grade inflation, hon.

I've got two more weeks of torturous hell.

I'm in. In fact, I'll pray for all the fine teachers in the world, hitting the home stretch, 'specially those fine LoyNO ones who happen to be grading my boy's work, which I'm quite certain is uniquely brilliant (having nothing to do with the fact that I'm his mama;).

It's nice to hear you're still at it, darlin'. I like Adrastos' idea. ;)

I Loath grading of any kind, bloggers included. Judgement is not my thing, but unfortunately, it's part of my job description and it's the one part I would change if I could.

(But if I had to, I'd give every one of my blog-friends an A+.)

f only New Orleans cared about New Orleans

If it had been a concert at the High Noon Tuesday evening it would have been a sold out show. Four hundred ninety supporters of Madison's Air America affiliate, the Mic, packed into the venue with more spilling out onto the patio and into the parking lot. Multiple speakers, including politicians and Mic advertisers, took to the stage to express their concerns and frustration over the decision by Clear Channel to dump the progressive talk format and replace it with FOX Sports. But those speakers, while they all brought important messages, weren't the most striking part of the evening. What struck a chord in me was the casual conversation after the event from unsuspecting folks who sounded like they were snapped in the ass with a towel. They were saying things like, "Clear Channel doesn't care about Madison," "why does Clear Channel get to make our decisions," "Clear Channel owns too much."

It struck a nerve because it has been a long time since there has been casual talk like that in a public space....
Clear Channel doesnt care about Madison
