Weekend Round-Up!

Random factiods and thoughts for Friday afternoon . . .

Head Cold for the Better
a) Low Point: I'm home sick and I look as crappy as I feel.
b) High Point: I got to watch the Colbert Report I missed last night. ;)

Presidential Race
a) High Point: I've been waiting to vote for Hillary for ages
b) Low Point (not as low as I thought, though): I would never vote for a candidate just because they're Mormon, but if Mitt can move back to the middle of the road, it would be the first time in a long time I'd be happy with the Red and the Blue candidates.
*But I'm still voting the Clintons back in office unless otherwise moved by the spirit (although, Stephen Colbert did annouce his candidacy this week, so I'll have to do some soul searching.

A New Way to Help Teachers, since Referrendum 1 won't (VOTE NO!!!)
a) High Point: Go to http://www.donorschoose.com/ to donate to programs that teachers can't fund because our education system is so screwed up (especially in Utah. Find out more at www.utahnsforpublicschools.org/)
b) Low Point: There isn't one... The Suite-Mangum Foundation (aka Danny) made a donation to an art project for an inner-city school today.

Are you thinking about Edward too?

Because I can't let it go, and I'll have to be funny another time. . . ;)

Did you know?
  • The average private school tuition is nearly $8,000 a year.
  • The average statewide voucher is estimated to be only about $2,000.
  • That means that for a family with four children, the additional $24,000 in tuition puts private school completely out of reach.
