Something more substantial later.
But to tide you over now...
A really interesting critique of "Farenheit 9/11" (no, I won't link it) by a Slate Magazine writer (again, no link) who could by no means be called a conservative. Proof that maybe there are some critical thinkers on the left side of the aisle, after all. (I'm just kidding, folks. Geez, you lefties are easy to irritate.)
An article about the second greatest Elizabethan playwright; though it says nothing about the theories surrounding Shakespeare's real identity. (You former students of mine should be nodding in recognition.)
Another Slate article about the so-called "dodgeball phenomenon" that actually explores the *gasp* positive aspects of the schoolyard pastime. Shocking.
I've also discovered some fun blogs by writerly/teacherly types.
