Do this most mornings, and so decided to post them here...

I go through the news rss feeds every morning, kind of like the 21st century answer to a newspaper, and decided to put a few of the links I found interesting here, for anyone who would like to read them.

Sick-out Closes over 50 Detroit schools

This one makes me think a bit, and wonder at the state of the Detroit school system. Seriously, which matters more, keeping your educators happy, or keeping your administrators happy?

Chinese scholar earns fellowship to explore race

I haven't decided what I think of this yet. I will have to wait and attempt to get ahold of the study to read. It does say some interesting things concerning European descended folks who have been talking about identity issues for their own children.

Irish Names not so Irish
