Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Morton: Educate 'invisible' kids

I tell you what, if I was invisible, I know I sure wouldn't be sitting in a classroom!

Anyway, despite the silly headline, it really is a good story--the idea that teachers should teach all their students--why, it's just amazing! Also reminds me of a joke I recall from the Reader's Digest, circa 1969. A teacher is writing on the blackboard and talking at the same time, when one of her more disruptive students interrupts her to say he doesn't understand what she's saying, and can't see what she's written on the board. In exasperation, she says, "Well, Timmy, I am trying to be clear, but I can't be transparent!"

Okay, I warned you it was on old joke.
