Journal of No. 118

DonorsChoose @ 10:13 am

I gave to this proposal for a Carson high school to get copies of "How to Read Literature Like a Professor" for the honors and AP literature students. There's just $125 to go to get it fully funded, so do what you can, or find some other worthy project. (PS thank you Wasserman Foundation for your matching gift)

I also finished off a modest request from a quasi-local elementary school for pencils and an electric pencil sharpener. Freaking pencils. Okay, so the teacher splurged and put some colored pencils on the shopping list, but still. Half the projects on Donorschoose seem to be for digital projectors and iPads, while then there are teachers trying to get paper and pencils.

"Also, Dude, colored pencils is not the preferred nomenclature. African American pencils, please."

Actually, Dude, your assumption that African American would be the preferred pencil nomenclature reflects your hopelessly outdated binary view of race in our society. "Pencils of color" is a much more inclusive term.
