Quote of the Day (For Exiting Grads)

From the graduation speech that Tom Friedman, author and columnist in the NY Times, gave to Tulane University:

What brought down Hosni Mubarak was not Facebook or Twitter.

It was a million people in the streets ready to die for what they believed in.  

So if you want to get something done in the world, never forget that ultimately you have to get out of Facebook and into somebody's face.

I'm still looking for that rally down at JSCEE, with 10,000 students, parent/guardians, educators, and other concerned citizens demanding REAL accountability...
