It's Friday. I'm in a funky mood. So I offer something to get you thinking, followed by something to get you laughing.
First, a school superintendent in Michigan wrote a letter requesting that his school be turned into a prison since prisons are better funded than schools. It provides a provocative glance at our thinking on both our educational system and our correctional system. You can find the letter here.
Now then, how about something fun:
When Blueberry was a baby, she was hospitalized a few times for pneumonia (that's not the fun part). I, of course, stayed in the hospital with her. Not having a TV at the time, I had never seen the Ellen Degeneres Show. So each time we were in the hospital, I would watch the show while Blueberry slept. Unfortunately, I would end up laughing so hard that I would wake her up -- also not the fun part.
Anyhow, occasionally, when I feel blue or need a little pick-me-up, I get online and find clips of Ellen's show because it never fails to make me laugh.
Today I bring you a compilation of some of the pranks she pulls on camera. May it bring joy to your Friday -- that's the fun part.
