It was so beautiful out today that after taking a walk I had to bike back for my camera and take a picture.
I’ve got links to share.
- First, the KidsOutAndAbout.com newsletter for this week is available early–yay!
- Did you guys know about this forum tomorrow night? Here’s a quick quotation from the Times Union piece: “Alarmed by decreasing state aid and deep cuts to staff, leaders from five school districts are banding together for a public forum in an attempt to sway voters and elected leaders to their side. Students, parents, teachers and administrators from South Colonie, Schenectady, Niskayuna, Schoharie and Cobleskill-Richmondville schools will speak from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Sand Creek Middle School in Colonie.” I’m pretty sure that I can’t make this one. I thought it was strange that it wasn’t mentioned at my meeting last night (at least not while I was there–I left early when J ran out of steam and I couldn’t keep a lid on my crabbiness anymore).
- I was listening to a This American Life podcast in the car today, and a recent episode had a portion of Tig Notaro’s stand-up routine about a string of very, very bad events happening in her life. It’s one of those laugh-and-cry things, really worth the listen.
- A reader sent along this CNN piece about kids and politics and Bad Kitty.
- Did you hear that Liberty Ridge Farm, which is also a wedding venue, will not allow same-sex couples to get married there? I saw this first on Kristi Gustafson Barlette’s blog, couldn’t resist checking out the angry Facebook page comments and arguments, and by the evening it was a news story on WNYT Newschannel 13.
- I have been loving The Mindy Project. How about the rest of you–any reviews? I just plain love her, though. Yeah, okay, it’s not entirely groundbreaking. But it’s fun.
- From Upworthy, here are a couple of brief interviews with Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old girl from Pakistan shot by the Taliban for speaking up for girls’ rights to an education. The first one is from when she’s just 11.
