At this point, I think the only reason I am keeping my Google+ account is so that I don't mess up my YouTube channel.

The purpose (and the sorrow) of the worst kind of email—the passive-aggressive forward
Email forwards are the worst. But these two phrases are the worst of the worst.

Huh? "Many school districts in Florida devote more than 60 school days each year to standardized testing"
Parents, students and school officials have joined a national protest of the consequences of Common Core testing.

The Founding Fathers believed that their experiment in self-governance would require active participation by an informed public, which could only be possible if people had unfettered access to information. James Madison, author of the First Amendment guaranteeing freedom of speech and of the press, summarized the proposition succinctly: “The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty.” Thomas Jefferson explained to his French friend, the Marquis de Lafayette, "The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed.” American journalists cherish another of Jefferson's remarks: “Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.”
The Bad News About the News:Robert Kaiser, the former managing editor of the Washington Post, presents an examination of the changing state of the news industry and the impending threat to American democracy.

Very clever
Broken Promises. What should a journalist investigate today, according to what has been promised in the past? Journalism++. About. In 2003, an article in the New Scientist predicted that bananas could be extinct in 2013. Guess what. This was yet another broken promise.
