Doonesbury Backs DonorsChoose.Org

After forty-one years, Doonesbury is still the most consistently engaging and entertaining comic strip. Not that G.B.

Rapper/Misogynist Pitbull: National Charter School Conference Keynote Speaker

That is not a typo. Pitbull, who, in addition to being a multi-platinum recording artist, is now a CHARTER SCHOOL OPERATOR! Because our kids deserve nothing less than an education sponsored by the man who gave us “Hotel Room Service”.

Badass teachers I can handle. Dumbass, on the other hand. . .
