Judgements

If you have perused my posts, especially those dealing with policy and/or legislation, you will note that I make judgements on the intent of those promoting their policies.  Many times, I find that my initial judgements were ill informed.  Those times are the result of talking to the initiator, listening, then making an assessment of the policy intent.

I keep telling myself I will learn not to jump to conclusions, or at least, to wait until the advocate of a policy matter either clearly annunicates his or her position or proves to be without credibility.  Discourse is good.  Debate is honorable.  Losing is not bad.  Poor judgement, however, is devastating.

Dead poets and politicians

Actually, the way society respects each is diametrically opposed.  Dead poets, at least the good ones, rise in respect. Dead politicians (dead in the political realm, not corporeal), well, as a friend once said:

No one wastes goodbyes on  dead politicians

Blast from the past

Found the blog of a good high school friend…

She seems to have regressed to old english … but otherwise, she is dabbling with lots of Web 2.0 tools for her teaching.
