Excellent list! I had to comment on two, though I should be wrapping presents instead:

"Tolerate an athletics before academics mentality, chaos, fundamentalists"

I totally agree. Academics MUST come first. When they don't, we are doing our children a grave disservice. A few years ago, our school district hired a new football coach, paying him MORE than the higest-salaried teacher in the entire district, even though a) He didn't have to teach any classes or grade any papers b) It took years before they started winning any games c) The district lacked funding to keep some of the teachers on, and ended up downsizing, resulting in larger class sizes. He was NOT downsized, of course.

"Write as Sharon Olds"

Yay! Someone else knows who Sharon Olds is! LOVE her poetry.

Glad you found my new site. :-)

Yay! Blogger set up a new way to identify ourselves, for those who have moved to Wordpress or some other blogging program/host. I've entered my new info this time.
