Its time to get a more realistic national anthem.


I'm coming to the conclusion that our venerable blood & thunder national anthem is obsolete.  It just doesn't depict anything remotely like reality anymore.  Its just a hollow and sentimental invocation of the faded glory of what was once meant to be.

The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education

A bookclub selection!

Initially a supporter of the contemporary movement to reform/improve public education, Dr. Ravitch's experiences with actual instances of attempts to implement those strategies turned her into an opponent of them. The singleminded drive to have children pass testing to standards in reading and math while otherwise ignoring curriculum and what, if anything, is actually learned, was in fact undermining education, not advancing it.

Were You Born on the Wrong Continent?: How the European Model Can Help You Get a Life

 So far the Moving Train Book Club has covered two of Geoghegan's books, "The Law in Shambles," and "The Secret Lives of Citizens."  Both are among my favorites.

News: Firebare Takes Next Step: Files Petition to Deny FCC's Decision for MX group 401

ANNOUNCEMENT:  A RADIO ON THE EDGE update for Firebare supporters

UPDATE: FCC decision November 9: Firebare is now tentative final selectee in 401 MX group: http://radioontheedge.org/node/26

We finally have news!

Many of you have asked about the status of the application that Firebare submitted to The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) on October 15, 2007, for a license to build and operate a new noncommercial educational radio station on the Oregon Central Coast.

Six other conflicting applications from competing organizations were also submitted at that time which made conflicting claims on the public airwaves in this area. Our lawyer and engineer advised us at that time that it would take the FCC two to three years to resolve these mutually exclusive (MX) applications, and, sure enough, on August 3, 2010, 1,023 days, or 2.8 years to the day after filing our application, the FCC duly released their tentative decision on our MX Group #401.
