Finally A Not Too Busy Saturday (Well Sort Of..... )
After house hunting and friends visiting the past two weekends which was fun too but crazy busy, we finaly have a less busy Saturday. I think I need a 3 day weekend. Err.. but who doesn't?
So it's off to
- Getting the car washed
- Home Inspection
- Inside Man (Denzel, Jodie Foster and Clive Owen ..what's not to like). The movie reviews have been good too.
- Shop at Trader Joe's (umm love their Chicken Jalapeno Sausages)
- Watch History Of Violence on DVD. Viggo is hot (doesn't hurt that he is politically very aware and intelligent). *A* loves Viggo and Ed Harris (she will watch anything with him in it). As an added bonus there is Maria Bello. I think she is very underrated as an actress, folks might know her from ER, but she was really good in The Cooler. The Cooler was a bit of a let down despite the good acting. William H Macy should stop playing losers, he has that down pat. (There I go on all off topic).

Saw this piece of news. Political correctness gone too far or just plain wierd?
STUDENTS BANNED FROM RAISING HANDS
(England) - The head of the Jo Richardson comprehensive school in Dagenham, England, prohibits students from raising their hands in class, according to a January Daily Telegraph report, to keep those not called on from feeling ''victimized.''

Question.. how the heck does the teacher know that a student wants to respond? Do they design sign language - two rapid blinks/ finger up the nose/shake of the head for a raised hand?

Try not to follow the upward pointing arrow in the image below if you are on a bike ;-)

Remember the dread when the teacher is looking for someone to call on and you dont know the answer?
Wouldnt you rather the teacher call on the ones that know the answer then the ones that dont know? Isnt that far worse on the fragile victim's psyche
What next.. politically correct fairy tales..The question is, do we really need to clean up our act to this extent?
