The good, the bad, and the odd

Lest you think that my history class is utterly devoid of any good exchanges: my teacher was talking about the concentration camps and the disposal of Jewish people en masse as it was convenient for the Nazis, and one of the girls from the back of the class said in a decided way - "So it's just like euthanasia." "Yeah," responded the teacher, in rather an abashed way.

SF Gate has another article on families.

My favorite quote: "Knight says even if little Olivia becomes the "firecracker radical activist" her father hopes, it's going to be extremely difficult for her to overcome the environmental original sin she embodies."

A positive thing. (Curtsey, not a hat tip, to my friend R. - ladies don't tip their caps) It is amusing to watch for a minute or two.
