About Teaching and Learning

Saw this online, of all places, on the Columbia County, Oregon, web site:

Tell me, I forget.
Show me, I remember.
Involve me, I understand.

Teresa and Sandra

Anyone else agree that Teresa Heinz Kerry resembles what Sandra Bullock is likely to look like 20 years from now?

Iraq And A Hard Place

Many have known about these Iraqi prisoner abuses for months. They are only coming out now because of a few courageous whistleblowers, and the attendant media frenzy.

I get the feeling, tho', that all the mea culpas we've been seeing this week have taken place because the high-ranking officials with ultimate oversight have been dragged kicking and screaming into this. If these matters did not come forward, they would have been perfectly happy to leave things as they are, with these humiliations taking place in secret.

Although the military brass may be annoyed at these abuses, they didn't, and don't, seem to react with the same instant vitriol as if a female soldier sought an abortion, or a male soldier hooked up with another of his gender, and made no secret of that. So, put prisoners on leashes, grope women at Tailhook parties, that's OK. Just don't get caught. Exercise control of your own body, and your own heart, not OK.
