A couple hours have passed since the debate. It's finally cooling off (a little) outside. Thinking about logical fallacies and how so many people in this country are in so much pain that they may not be thinking clearly. Thinking about what I want to do tomorrow. Thinking about the language at school: "Minimum Day." What does that mean, anyway? How does it translate to making the most of our learning? Why do I so often feel like I'm working for students against all the influences that challenge students to be less than their best? Is it really too hot to learn? Thinking that I'll pass on doing the agenda now and post it late night or early morning.
