I write to stay off a steady diet of chocolate chip cookies and chips.
Notice I said–steady.
Sometimes I write an essay and then shelve it because it is too personal or polemic.
You can imagine how rough these pieces may be.
One such unpublished essay was, on review, well-spoken, passionate, and almost entirely wrong.
I had misjudged a man by a meme.
A man I now deeply respect and a quote taken out of context.
Yes, I still believe that we should not refer to people as “stupid.”
But as a current rabid fan of the Crash Courses on YouTube produced by John and Hank Green, I thoroughly endorse the Green Bros. and their ability to teach. They rock and they make my job as an educator much more fun and engaging.
Nothing stupid about that.
