Hell No You Can't!

The health care bill has passed and is now law. So where's the promised Armageddon? Have they come for your grandma yet? A recent Harris poll reported that 24% of republicans believe that Obama may be the Antichrist :-) Does this say anything about the state of education in the USA? And what kind of a pollster asks a question like this anyway? "Sir, do you believe Ronald Reagan was a unicorn?"

Communicating through Craft

It was such a pleasure and privilege to visit Sujit's Shikshamitra Learning Center in Kolkatta in January and to watch students follow a couple of visiting Japanese artists and participate in the making of beautiful wind chimes from plastic bottles that most of us throw away. (I now know what to do with the extra bottles sitting on my desk!) Or see a slideshow here.
