A roundup of things to read and do.
"This Is Sooooo Old" by Heather Kirk-Davidoff on "Hamilton" and modern-day political turmoil. Grounded and Rooted in Love
"Seven Months, Twenty-Three Days Done" by Lisa Marini Schlossnagle about the unexpected conclusion of a round-the-world voyage. Schlossini Voyage (Then go back to the beginning and read the whole thing.)
"Howard County School Board election seen as way forward" by Lisa Philip recapping Tuesday night's BOE candidate forum. Howard County Times.
"Bovine Based Wisdom" by Jason Booms, and you just have to read it for yourself. I had to read it a few times for the entire meaning to sink in, and then it left me with a very good feeling. Closest thing to a gentle homily I've read recently. Spartan Considerations.
Take the survey.
And a hat tip to the old Friday Links, Tom Coale, HoCoRising. I tried to find one quintessential example but just got sucked in reading old posts. You should, too. So good.
Last, but not least, this courtesy copy I received from BOE Chair Christine O'Connor letting me know that my nominee, Vicky Cutromeo, did not receive the Friend of Education Award. As we know, it's an honor just to be nominated, so Ms. Cutromeo has been invited to attend the reception where the award will be presented. To someone else. I wonder if she will actually be allowed to get in the room.
