Sunday School

Learning Curve. From the Tampa Tribune, 50 things you could have learned in 2007. Dicover the increased risk for prostate cancer for the fathers of daughters only, the benefit of "artificial snot," and the deleterious health effects of second-hand toner.

Gender Studies. Two very popular books, The Daring Book for Girls and The Dangerous Book for Boys, which instruct children on old-fashioned pastimes, are subjected to 21st century feminist scrutiny here.

School Choice. An interesting article on a subject near and dear to my heart. A telephone interview with John Norquist, former four term mayor of Milwaukee and proponent of school choice. Note the system did not fall apart when they introduced vouchers.

Snow Day. What would any school year be without one? Here in Florida, we have the occasional Hurricane Day. A week or so ago, Baghdad experienced its first snowfall in about a hundred years. Can we say, "sign from God"? Article here.
