The Twilight Zone of the Inaugeuphoria: Looks at the shiny new President with the Gaza stain on his tie, at renegade janitors and subversive teachers, at charity for soldiers and no mercy for victims, and at whether Israel lost the 23-day war. Includes quotes from Van Jones, Arutz Shiva, and Arnold Toynbee. Reads Martin Espada’s poem, “Jorge the Church Janitor Finally Quits,” and gives the reasons he refused to write a poem for Nike. Clay Burrell, an education blogger in Korea, suggests teaching through simulated trauma – turning the classroom into a sweatshop for a day. We also counsel truth as the millennium’s weapon of choice. Music: Cinematic Orchestra, John Ondrasik/ Five for Fighting, the Fray.
