Laugh for Mom Day! 

This week's SynCast is a delightful collection of prank phone calls. I hope all you moms out there enjoy!

I've been spending a lot of time lately watching the archived Frontline shows you can watch online. I especially recommend, for my teacher friends, A Class Divided, about Iowa teacher Jane Elliott's 1968 program to show her kids the power of discrimination. Be sure also to check out the 2002 interview with Elliott.
I've learned that discrimination and its effects are the same no matter where you find them. I get the same results with the exercise in Berlin or in the Netherlands that I do in the U.S. or Australia or Curacao. And what's even more distressing is the fact that I've gotten the same results using the exercise with adults in Scotland and Australia in the year 2002 that I got using the exercise with children in Riceville, Iowa, in 1968.

Today I'm listening to: The Jerky Boys!
