Just a rant on a Sunday morning...
Oh, yeah, I know what you are going to say..."He owns an NBA team with a majority of players who are black.  Most of the people who make money for him are black..."  Okay, so exactly HOW does that make it surprising that this...

I read an article yesterday that outlined what Romney advisors put out to the press on Romney's education plan.  A part of it said that Romeny would end the requirement for "highly qualified" teachers in the core classes.  Now, I can't find that article and I would like to reread it.  Does anyone remember reading it and know where I might find it?

Great posting Lisa. Give me a bit to respond. Fridays to Sundays are my days for my Masters degree study. I work all week and the evenings and weekends are my only opportunity to burn the learning oil.

Respectfully

Today is my birthday...I don't tell you that for the obligatory "Happy Birthday" - but because I am now 52 years old and I feel that I am actually living for the first time.  Why?  I think that it is because I have finally rid myself of the need to please everyone except myself.  Yes - it took 52 years for me to deal with the childhood full of being a "trained poodle" for my Mother's love...and 52 years to break with the idea that for someone to love me that I have to be who they want for me to be.  Isn't that pathetic?  Of course it is...but I still have several more years to make it up to myself. I have taken positive steps to being my own person, and have begun to stand up for my wants and needs.  No more am I going to allow an unrealistic need for love and acceptance cause me to give up my own self - my Soul - and my dignity. So...if you like me, it will be for exactly who I am, and not because I am who you want for me to be...if you love me, it will be with all of the bad as well as the good...and if you don't like me - well, that is your problem, because I am a pretty cool person!

It seems like to me that if professional sports owners truly cared about the players, then they would do something to help them cope with the big changes that being a professional player can bring- financial, social, familial and emotional. It is sad that 63% of NBA players and 78% of NFL players declare bankruptcy within 5 years of ending their career. With 19 year olds able to enter the NBA draft, and 22 year olds the NFL, many players are not ready for the responsibilities placed on them. They are also not ready for the ease in which things tend to come to them, or the fact that they are given a lot of attention and adoration- both false and true.

I was asked to repost...
Lisa Walters originally shared:
 

The Madonna...
The Whore...
Which is it?
What do you want-
for me to BE?
The little boy,
with sad eyes-
and a sob story
Needs comfort...
A solace in the bosom
Of the Prayerful One.
The big boy
With lustful eyes-
and a good game
Needs comfort...
A receptacle
For his illusions.

The Madonna 
would never say "f*** me"...
And the Whore
would never say "love me".
It's too bad-
Because the Madonna
Needs a release.
And the Whore...
Needs one, too.

Story
Tagline
A woman has to be intelligent, have charm, a sense of humor, and be kind. It's the same qualities I require from a man. - Catherine Deneuve
Introduction
A Southern steel magnolia from Mississippi came to California and found her life. An English teacher who now plays games with high school students for the better part of her days, she hopes to leave the world a better place than when she arrived - mainly by teaching her students that compassion, tolerance and kindness are more important than dogma, prejudice and self-absorption.
Bragging rights
I am a liberal who lived in the deep South for the first 35 years of my life - I think that counts.
