Cheap food is an illusion. There is no such thing. The real cost of the food is paid somewhere. If it’s not charged at the cash register, it’s charged to the environment, it’s charged to the people in the form of subsidies, or it’s charged to your health. In the end you get what you pay for.

I remind young people everywhere I go, one of the worst things the older generation did was to tell them for twenty-five years “Be successful, be successful, be successful” as opposed to “Be great, be great, be great”. There’s a qualitative difference.

Just watched this SJ vid of Ms. Hill…

She’s blessed to have both talents of singing and spitting. However, IMHO, I believe she should give up the former due to the weathering of her voice and start kicking some new shit. Because, despite the fact that she is probably the illest female emcee, there’s only so many years you can keep performing the same two albums (The Score and MisEducation).

The contemporary American classroom, with its grades and deference to the clock, is an inheritance from the late 19th century. During that period of titanic change, machines suddenly needed to run on time. Individual workers needed to willingly perform discrete operations as opposed to whole jobs. The industrial-era classroom, as a training ground for future factory workers, was retooled to teach tasks, obedience, hierarchy and schedules…

I am such a fan of this little girl. To be 16 years old and stand next to Jennifer Holliday and hold your own is amazing talent. And Ms. Holliday was not letting it be forgotten that this is still her song. :)

I don’t go crazy over these shows (in fact I rarely watch them), but the first time I heard Jessica sing I knew she is going to be a star. Bummed she didn’t win, but pray she has a successful life - not just a career in the often blinding limelight.

Interesting read. I’m starting to have a deeper interest in charity sustainability and aid effectiveness.

Toms’ “buy one, give one” model for shoe sales sounds like a great idea. But does it really alleviate poverty? It depends.
