SOS Photos/Links

I keep trying to do a long piece on SOS but just can't type for that long. Maybe tomorrow.

Here is a slide show I made of the fab GEM workshop at SOS.
A GEM workshop on “Building a Grassroots Movement to Defend Public Education” to a packed room of more than 40 people at Thursday’s conference.  See the montage of the year in review we showed here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vge-rx6QXgQ

Mark Naison,  Notorious PhD, comments on an ed deformer commentary on his rap at SOS:

Here is a You Tube version of my "Achievement Rap" as performed at the Save Our Schools March in Washington

The commentary is critical and sarcastic, but I have always felt, as a writer, that bad publicity is better than no publicity and I guess I should take the same attitude toward my emerging "career" as a rapper.
