Read the passage at the bottom (the first passage quoted is inaccurate). Once you're finished, go back and read the questions that actually appeared on the test. I have a son that just took this ridonkulous test and he has verified that this passage and the questions were actually on this year's NYS ELA exam. I am so angry that my head may explode! If you think this insanity needs to stop, post this on your site so parents can see what our kids are being subjected to under the whims of NYS and filthy, stinking rich testing companies. This insanity needs to stop NOW! The moral of this story is not that pineapples don't have sleeves. The story is an allegory. The USA is represented by the pineapple. The rest of the world is represented by the hare. The animal audience is the testing companies raking in big bucks while we sit quietly.

Pretty cool!
Check out It's Who I Am - the new LGBT magazine for queer youth. http://itswhoiam.org/ You can read it online for free or download a copy for $1.99. (http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/348170) It's packed full of articles, art, and more!

You can also read a detailed, thoughtful, indepth interview that Tina Toler Keel did with me, and see some of my art.

Lego: it's not just a kiddie toy anymore!
Just read this article about scientist in Cambridge, UK using Lego robots to help create artificial bone in the laboratory. Always amazed that we don't have more low cost automation tools in use and the best ones we have are actually toys!

Join a hangout with the scientists tomorrow at 8AM PT.
