Got a little time on Sunday to read the story behind the story? How about a video that will have you a bit teary-eyed? I spend a couple of hours on Saturdays looking for items worth sharing.
- I don't normally share commercials here, but the Honey Maid message about family and the power of love is worth sharing. More than 2 million people have watched the video on YouTube.
- David Letterman's announcement that he is retiring has the rumor mill churning. Who will replace the "Late Night" Hoosier? Scott Collins and Meredith Blake of the Los Angeles Times take a close look at what's at stake for CBS and which names in the hat make the most sense.
- What happens when teachers flat out refuse to give standardized tests? I spotted this story written by Diane Brooks for Education Uprising in YES! Magazine at billmoyers.com.
- My favorite pastime? Making fun of politicians. The silly season is underway, and I'm so happy. Gail Collins wrote an Op-Ed column for The New York Times with examples guaranteed to make you smile, or at least scratch your head. My fave? The Iowa candidate who used a photo of Danish pig to promote her video having to do with castrating hogs and what plans she has for D.C. politicians.
