To all those wondering – yes, I fully intend to follow up yesterday’s Pitching for Television post with a Submitting the Perfect Outline entry (eventually) and no, yesterday’s post does not mean we’re actively looking for pitches.  Sorry.

Swung by the bookstore today.  Check out my haul –

Lisa the vegetarian (That’s the name she goes by.  Honest.  It’s sort of like Conan the Barbarian.) told me a little about Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (the story is told from the point of view of an autistic boy who takes it upon himself to investigate the death of a neighbor’s dog) and her description of the novel intrigued me enough to pick it up and set it at the top of my to-read pile.  At present, I’m reading Alastair Reynold’s The Prefect, a dense but thoroughly engaging book rich in wondrous hard SF trappings.  In addition, I’m working my way through a couple of Batman trade paperbacks.

I picked up a couple of books that made several Best of 2010 lists: Harmony by Project Itoh, and Quantum Thief by Hannu Rajaniemi.  The former is set in a future dystopian world where society is closely monitored and tended to by a benevolent dictatorship.  A woman by the name of Tuan Kirie resists this totalitarian authority, first as a young girl, and later as an adult working to save the planet.  The book’s author, Keikaku (Project) Itoh, revised and completed Harmony while received treatment for cancer. He passed away in 2009 at the age of 34.  Quantum Thief, the first book in a planned trilogy, is described as a futuristic heist caper.  Sold!

I was introduced to the work of Carlos J. Cortes through his novel The Prisoner, a smart near-future tech-triller that happened to be a Book of the Month Club pick in May of last year.  I enjoyed the book so much that when I spotted his first novel, Perfect Circle, sitting on the bookshelf, I didn’t hesitate to snap it up.  Also making today’s haul, two classics: Christopher Priest’s The Inverted World and Fred Hoyle’s The Black Cloud.

Finally, two cookbooks made the trip to register as well: Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: An All-American Road Trip…with Recipes! (Cap’n Crunch French Toast!) and How to Cook Like a Top Chef.

Speaking of Top Chef, I’ve been watching the latest season, All-Stars, and re-watching season five, and would like to make a couple of additions to my Food T.V. Personalities I Enjoy Watching and Food T.V. Personalities That Kind of Get on My Nerves!

Eric Ripert (award-winning chef and owner of Le Bernardin, occasional guest judge on Top Chef).

He’s incredibly charming, talented, and seems genuinely good-natured.  This guy needs his own show.

Toby Young (British journalist, author and judge on Top Chef).

The guy certainly knows his food but I could do without his manufactured witticisms.  The occasional bon mot is amusing but consistent quippiness gets old very fast.

Playoff football tomorrow!  In the NFC, I’m rooting for the Packers although I would be happy to see the Bears return to the Superbowl.  In the AFC, I’m backing the Jets.  And, no, I would not be happy to see the Steelers representing in Texas.

Finally, last night, in a preview of the I Make the Best Whatever… showdown, I made a variation of Greg’s Nutty Broken Pasta dish (see January 19th mailbag), replacing the spaghetti with penne rigate and pinwheel pasta, the gorgonzola/feta with St. Andre cheese, crisping the sage, and adding a little cream and butter to the mix.

It was very good although, in the future, I think I’d add the pinwheels later as the pastas cooked unevenly.

Next week, I start on those other reader recipes!


49 thoughts on “January 22, 2011: Today’s book haul! More food t.v. personalities to add to my growing lists! Testing a reader recipe!

  1. That pasta looks awesome! I am going to try to make it this week. Does it taste as good as it looks ?
    Also , Do you think you will have any stargate news next week ?
    Take care…

  2. I’m pretty sure Eric Ripert does have his own show, it’s called Avec Eric. You can check it out at (I have no idea what channel it’s on though)

    I personally love it. He makes me want to cook! 🙂

  3. Isn’t it defeating the purpose if you’re modifying the reader recipes right from the start? Or are you trying a bobby flay throwdown style of competition? And how about another judge?
    Where are you storing all these books? Or have you found hidden TARDIS technology somewhere, and just put them all in the sub subbasement? I need to know because I’m flirting ever closer to becoming a candidate for one of these hoarder shows every day. And 90%of my “junk” is books. I;m going to have to break down, buy a home, and make sure to build in a libarary with enough shelf space to finally put all my tomes up in proper order.
    Thanks for the daily dose and do keep up on the recipe challenge. Inquiring minds want to know and all that.

  4. yes but who do you take pitches from? what are the requirements?

    interesting books, but Harmony doesnt sound like something i would read and the dog one too. Would like to know more about Quantum thief.

  5. Your D,D & D book reminded me of the Saturday Night Live sketch in late November with Guy Fierri on Weekend Update. Whoever portrayed Guy did a dead-on job with all the hipster language and his trademark goofiness. Check it out on Hulu if you can.

    Ripert is cool, I like that guy, but I don’t mind Toby all that much.

    Go Jets!

  6. Fingers crossed for Jets-Bears!

    Unfortunately, I’ll be driving to Detroit during the games…so I’ll have to catch most/all of it on the radio.

    At least I’ll be home (in town at least) for the Super-Bowl.

    @Joe:The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time:

    This book is in my reading-stack as well (my daughter works with autistics), so I`ll be interested in reading your comments.

  7. Hey am I the only one getting errors from your pics? It says that they cant be shown because they contain errors.

  8. News from the heart of the Super Bowl:

    Troy Aikman is making PSA commercials telling us that the Super Bowl is going to bring in lots of guests from everywhere. He wants us to behave our selves and treat all visitors we meet as family and be as helpful and nice as possible. Where’s the fun in that?

    Jerry Jones has aquired 10,000+ volunteers to work Super Bowl Sunday. Just the privilege of working your ass off Sunday should be payment enough, but just in case, each volunteer gets some cool swag (heavy jacket, fanny pack, water bottle, hat – in Cowboy colors, of course).

    Jerry Jones is also offering up $100 tickets to anyone who wants to “be a part of it”, just not inside the gates. The ticket will allow you to stand in the parking lot during the game.

    It’s getting crazy around here in Texas.

  9. Interesting book list.

    Joe, the Packers? Really? Well, I’ll forgive you for rooting for the Pack – as long as they don’t beat the Bears tomorrow.

    Crispy sage; mmmmmmm! I would not have thought of St. Andre for pasta, but it does sound interesting. I may give it a try.

  10. Joey, while you were out buying books and cooking fancy-schmancy recipes…guess what I was doing??!

    Filing a police report. 😛

    Here’s what happened. Last Monday I took my car to Honda for the bazillionth time in the last two years. You may (or may not) remember that – back when I was sick in the winter/spring of ’09 – I was also having car problems. Namely, a noise in my wheel when I applied the brakes. The noise started after my car failed inspection (like, 3 times), and I had my wheel and hub bearing replaced. When they replaced the hub bearing, it didn’t seat properly (leading to one of the inspection failures), and after they fixed it, my car started making this terrible intermittent grinding noise when I applied the brakes. It was so loud that people on the street glared at my car as I came to a stop. Honda acknowledged that the noise started after their repair, and over the past two years they’ve replaced/adjusted just about everything in the brake system. Finally they told me to leave the car, and they supplied a rental, at their expense. All week they had my car while I tooled around in a brand new Nissan Versa (with only 150 miles on it!). They concluded that my hub was actually warped (probably from when the hub bearing wasn’t seated properly), and so they replaced it, replaced the bearing, and resurfaced my rotors. All done. They gave me a call while I was in the grocery store, so I told them I’d be riiiiight up once I got my groceries home, etc. All was well with the world – smooooth sailing – as you like to say, Joe… until I walked out into the parking lot, and noticed a police car parked next to my rental…the one with the bumper hanging off. 😕

    Seems some idiot backed into my rental, then backed into the car two spaces from my car…and sped off. Fortunately there was a witness who took down the offending car’s license plate number, but it certainly wasn’t the way I wanted to return the car. Even though it wasn’t my fault – at all – I still feel responsible.

    Oh well, I guess I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I managed to get through one week without some mini-disaster happening, it’s just been that kind of life. 😛


  11. @ PBMom – That story you posted about yesterday is horrific. I can’t imagine what could possibly be motivating any of those people besides sheer evil. It is disgusting. Whatever you do, don’t let them break you. Sometimes this is the stuff that needs to be brought to the attention of Senators, and the like. Sometimes you need bigger guns on your side.

    Hope all works out for you and your family! {{{hugs}}}


  12. Looks good, although I add alot more sage (cut into small pieces) and I don’t see any walnuts, nut allergy ? I suspect breaking up the spaghetti into small pieces makes it absorb the broth better then the penne which usually takes longer to cook. BTW Joe thats a Rachel Ray 30 min meal recipe 😛

    Also, based on your blog from a few weeks back I picked up Irredeemable. Without a doubt one of the best series I’ve read. Someone should forward those to Zack Snyder. A friend said that “The Boys” and “Incorruptible” were also very good.

    That got me to thinking rewatching the original superman and contemplating the Plutonian. How would you raise the child knowing they would become a superman ? Nobody has told the story from that perspective at least from my reading experience.

    ISeems to always be from the point of view of the hero. In the Plutonians case he was feared and abandoned, and more realistically not knowing his strength permanently handicapped his step brother by hugging him.

    BTW I’m sure you’ve heard of the next batman, Tom Hardy as Bane, Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Never been a fan of catwoman and I’m curious if they’ll incorporate the whole Bane storyline with back breaking and all.

    Doesn’t seem plausible to me I wish they went with Batman Gothic.

  13. Joe —

    Eric Ripert does have his own show on US Public Television, Avec Eric. He is just as smart, witty, and gorgeous on it as on Top Chef.

    Have you seen the episode of Bourdain’s No Reservations where he goes back to Les Halles for a night as a line cook? Ripert goes with him and mans the grill station. It is hysterical.

  14. Long time reader first time poster. I’ve been following your blog for a while and being a resident of Vancouver I have really enjoyed your take on the restaurants here. I not only have a thing for the Stargate franchise but I also love the Food Network and I’m constantly fighting with my boyfriend to watch it. That being said we both thought that SGU was the best show on tv this season and we’re very sad to see it go. I’m also sad to see the stars leave Van as I have enjoyed seeing them around town. I actually saw Peter Kalamis do stand up with Ferreira and Ming-Na at the Nevermind and to my great excitement had the chance to serve Robert Picardo at my work. Keep up the great work and I hope any series you work on next does well.

  15. hey Joe,I was just wondering where can we the fans get all that exclusive information (which I desire to posses) such as artworks,planets information,creatures pre and post artworks and all of that stuff that you sometimes post on the blog???? please tell me,AS a STARGATE FAN I like to draw my own planets and stargates and spaceships and stories,but is not enough for me,and now that SGU is seemingly over………where can I get that important stuff?? please answer Joe………

  16. Regarding Curious Incident of a Dog in the Night-time I got a Deja vu feeling we’d discussed this before…maybe with Speed of Dark. I googled it and found several recommendations to you from different people on May 25 & 26 2007.

    Just saying LOL

    Cheers, Chev

  17. I agree that the recipes should not be changed at all. They should stand on their own. If you can’t make the recipe as is then it fails.

    Cheers, Chev

  18. Hey Joe,

    I LOVE Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives: An All-American Road Trip…with Recipes! THIS show I have seen. I am certainly going to look for the BOOK. Obviously it would take browsing to find. Who knew…Thank YOU!!

    Best to you Joe,
    Cheryl 🙂

  19. @DAS

    Then again, could’ve been worse… COULD’VE been YOUR freshly FIXED Car!!

  20. About that book “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”. I can only recommend it too, as a friend gave it to me not long ago and it was so very, very accurate.

    I have some symptoms of Asperger-Syndrome (a form of Autism), while my sister is a full-blown autist (“Kanner-Syndrome” in her case), so I recognized a lot of the behaviourisms and thought processes from myself or my sister. Of course, what happened to the dog and even more the way it was considered as unimportant by everybody in the book – except the autistic boy of course – bothered me greatly. And I often wondered, whether that is because the author is simply not a dog-lover and the book is told by him after all, or whether “normal” people are really that indifferent to what happens to the poor (and more importantly: innocent) dog. In that case I have to say I greatly prefer being a part-Autist myself. But I wonder how you see it and can hardly wait to read how you feel about the book. I hope you will let us know.

    And if you will do a mailbag again sometime, I would like to ask a question too. Some of the songs in SGU I really love and in most cases I could find the singer and songtitle mentioned somewhere in the internet. But I could not find it for the 1.season episode “Divided” and would very much appreciate it, if you could let me know. Only if you have the time of course. Thanks

  21. Hey Joe!

    I have a question I’m hoping you can answer. I have my DVR set to record the local syndicated broadcast of SGU season 1. (I would watch it live but I’m not often up at 2:00am) Anyway, it appears that the brightness has been cranked up for syndication. Do you know if that was an intentional decision by someone or if, perhaps, it’s just part of the process of what happens when an HD show is converted for a low def channel?

    I suppose the extra “darkness” on Syfy could be from compression of the signal from the cable system. I’m looking forward to comparing the picture to blu-ray once I get a blu-ray player and can buy the discs. At any rate, watching it with the higher level of brightness made it a different experience. I was able to see FAR more detail on the sets and found the show more enjoyable/less depressing in general. I just found it striking that I could see more detail watching in low def – which is somewhat counter-intuitive. I’m just curious if the audience has been seeing (literally) the same show that you all see before it gets sent off to the network.

    Fingers and toes crossed for the future!

  22. “no, yesterday’s post does not mean we’re actively looking for pitches. Sorry.”

    Oh well. Can’t blame a guy for trying. 🙂

    Amazon keeps suggesting ‘Quantum Thief’ to me. One of these days I might cave in and get it. It’ll probably sit atop the ‘to read’ pile for a long long time, along with ‘The Prefect’.

    I recently got the Xeelee Omnibus by Stephen Baxter. All four books in one package sounded really smart. Until I started reading it. The books are excellent but the package is a big, unwieldy and heavy affair and before my eyes get tired my arm does so progress is slow. In hindsight buying each book individually would have been a better idea.

    I read ‘The Seperation’ by Christopher Priest twice. Still not sure if I fully get it.

    The episodes of Top Chef get pretty funny when Eric Rippert and Anthony Bourdain are poking fun at each other as guest judges.

    @dasNdanger – That’s a rotten piece of luck. As trivial as it might seem car troubles can ruin your day. Especially if it’s caused by a hit and run.

  23. I haven’t seen Top Chef and I don’t even know who Toby Young is, but you saying “consistent quippiness gets old very fast” made me giggle. I’ve lived in the UK for 11 years now (I’m Swedish) and that’s just how the Brits are. They couldn’t stop it anymore than they could stop breathing. Admittedly some are more hard work with it than others.

    I remember one acquantaince that I had to make sure to only see in small doses as he couldn’t hold a normal conversation. A friend visiting from Sweden was plain baffled by it.

    According to the book “Watching the English” it is a cultural trait. It is a really fun and interesting book to read as a long-term resident, but I’m not sure how interesting it would be for someone who hasn’t taken part in everyday English life.

  24. The pasta looked good, but I want to know is: Where did you get the bowl it was in? I like the design on it.

    Finished up on the Allen Steele books I got from the library yesterday. They were both pretty good. I’m about to start on either February’s book or House of Suns next. Haven’t decided yet.

    Have a good day!

  25. Regarding The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the best review I can give it is that I had to stop reading it halfway through because it was too painful. GeekBoy is much higher functioning than Christopher, but Mark Haddon’s characterization is so spot-on that it made me cry. I did go back and finish it, because I couldn’t NOT finish it. I had trouble following the mystery because I just wanted to yell at everyone to leave Christopher alone! Let him eat the way he wants to–who’s it hurting??

    So, an excellent book, really, although I don’t think I could read it again. I’d definitely recommend it, though. I’d like to have GeekBoy read it and see what he thinks.

  26. I love good history books! I’ve just finished Scott of the Antarctic and started The Worst Journey In the World by Apsley Cherry-Garrard, one of the survivors of Scott’s expedition. I’m fascinated by their life in Antarctica, while at the same time trying to figure out WHY ON EARTH someone would put themselves through that?! I read the stories of frostbite and starvation while lounging on the sofa with a heated throw and a cup of hot mocha, because I have more SENSE!

    I chose Scott because it is supposedly one of the books on him that doesn’t idolize or demonize him. I’d have to say it did seem pretty balanced, but it relied so much on long quotes from people’s journals that I often lost the thread of what point the author was trying to make. Cherry-Garrard so far is very good at sorting out the confusing sequence of events for the reader, even though he was writing in the 1920s and assumes everyone is very familiar with the Antarctic expeditions and already knows what he’s talking about.

    Anybody have suggestions for other good history books? I’ve read Undaunted Courage which was excellent!

  27. Off on a tangent cooking ramble: My mayonnaise was broken this time, I guess my oil was a bit chilly. The lower kitchen cabinet where I keep my staples is against the uninsulated southwest corner of the house and stays very cool in winter. I tried the “beaten egg yolk drip” technique to thicken the mayo, it did blend nicely, but no emulsifying was happening. Ack. I didn’t want to toss out perfectly good ingredients. So I made supper instead. Tossed in a batch of pesto with the oil and eggs, boiled up some farfalle, tossed it all together with whatever cheese I had in the fridge (feta and mexican shred blend), and yum, dinner.

  28. Favourite ‘Spooks’ episodes? And why?

    What differences do you see between N American and UK approaches to action/thriller/sci-fi TV series, e.g. story arcs? number of subplots? characterisation? pace? tone?

    I’m in UK, and not to be generic though I will (must), my thinking on, say, the likes of Spooks though many others: fewer plot strands, slower (by varying amounts), and more sombre (I wouldn’t say darker – there’s plenty of that in N American series’ subject matter, but sombre verging on dour feels heavier, more ponderous).

    Maybe it’s a budget thing. Even when slower (I feel) each season has far fewer episodes (6, 8); even those for the resurrected, modernised and well received Sherlock Holmes counted be counted on the fingers of one hand. UK definitely has fewer syndications/sell-ons of series internationally, and so that would feed into budget and tone, etc?

    But there’s massive appetite for N American output. SG was enjoyed and the likes of Medium, etc, enjoy some following – repeats too – and more recently the Mentalist, Numb3rs, etc, but most especially the CSI, NCIS, Law & Order series, and others. Channel 5 goes a great deal on those. Channel Four carried The Event to not the greatest fanfare by viewers. The Flashforward had a good initial outing then lost traction.

    Would you pitch to UK, or is US/Canada the only places to play because of market size, or other factors that appeal?

    Would a broadcast sale to UK audience for SGU be useful mileage and signal to possible backers, or has that been tried/done, or would have to wait?

    Have you seen Primeval (hunting monsters coming through dimesional doorways)? Red Dwarf (sci-fi comedy; great characters? Torchwood (Dr Who spin-off)?

    Ever tried to remake Mousakka with bulgar wheat replacing minced beef, yoghurt concoction on top? Did so awhile back – lot of work, but flavourings vital to avoid a veggie morass. Worth a non-meat experiment?

    best, PJR

  29. @das: Poor baby! {{hug}} At least there was a witness so they can track down the person who did it. I’m still trying to figure out how they could have backed into two cars so far apart?????

  30. Hi Joe,

    Been a while, sorta. You know how a show producer/writer might end up in between jobs when a show doesn’t get renewed? Same thing with finishing a doctorate. It’s a great feeling having my Dr. degree now, though it’s now time for me to (hopefully) get an upgrade in employment and make that transition between jobs. Fun stuff. The economy these days, though, certainly factors in.

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts on Reynold’s “The Prefect”. I’m in the middle of a collection of fantasy novels at present, though will be switching off to SF after finishing the current series.

    Question about your Stargate episode writing premiere, back in the SG1 days…

    Regarding “Window of Opportunity” and Dr. Jackson’s loop-back phrase, “Anyway, I’m sorry but that just happens to be how I feel about it. What do you think?” What was Daniel talking about?



    Sean D.

  31. As mentioned you should look for Avec Eric, really good show! I was really disappointed in 1 of the Top Chef Allstars because she previously worked for Eric, but wasn’t very good.

    GO Bears and ahem cough gag choke Jets because I hate Steelers more lol

  32. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is one of the books I recommend to parents when their child is first diagnosed with autism. And like crazymom, I haven’t been able to go back and reread it because it hits too close to home. But it is a very accurate portrayal of the thought processes of someone with autism. It’s a good read, even if you don’t have a family member with autism.

  33. At the risk of being totally off topic for today’s blog, has anyone, thought to pitch SGU to Directv channel 101? They have picked up other cancelled, but critically acclaimed shows, IE Friday night lights, Glee, and now though I don’t know if cancelled Damages. If the showrunner are unable to do the pitch perhaps MGM may be willing if brought to their attention. Just the mind wanderings of a 65 year old Stargate Fan

  34. @das I took an accident report like that one time. Poor girl’s car was in the shop, so she was driving the loaner, and someone rearended her. It wasn’t a little fenders-bender, either–they really crunched the rear end of the car. As part of the report, we get the mileage from the vehicle. This one had 67 miles on it! She was mortified to return it to the dealer that way, but at least the other driver did stop.

  35. Mmm, that pasta looks delish. And hey, I didn’t know Guy had a Triple D book, so thanks for that tip! I love that show.

    And I loved yesterday’s post. If I ever do quit the career track I’m on and go into TV, like I often consider, it’ll be very helpful. 🙂

  36. @ PJR: so many good questions! Yes, UK vs USA tv; USA has quantity which is great when you look forward to lots of new eps from your fave show, not so good when your fave drama is canceled in favor of more cheap reality shows.

    I liked Syfy’s version of Being Human, but that is mostly for the gorgeous Sam Witwer and the kid from Jungle 2 Jungle all growed up. But my fave UK imports are Red Dwarf and the great costume dramas like Bleak House, North & South and Downton Abbey; Downton is horribly addictve.

    The pasta dish looked delicious, and I swore I could almost smell it, then I realized I had the stove on reheating an empanada. My mind is obviously as sharp as a silly band.

    The books sound terrific. Tho I still recommend setting aside the books in favor of the Alias PC video game and the Blade Runner PC game; nothing like fighting your way through Sloane baddies or replicants to get to a cool new level. Picking locks in the Alias game is so very cool, and the Blade Runner game has that gorgeous soundtrack.

  37. Joe,
    Ever thought of getting a Nook from Barnes and Nobles and reading books that way?..saves alot of bookself space.

  38. I’m from Sacramento, so when I saw Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on your book list, I couldn’t believe it! They did a story on my favorite diner here in Sacramento.

    You can watch the segment on The Squeeze Inn here on their media page:

    You won’t believe the burger. It really is the best in town.

    If you decide to sample this one in person, give me a call. I’ll treat.

  39. I know that’s just headshot of a chef, but the framing of that pic of Eric Ripert–the choice to go with a blade centered in the foreground–gives me the creeps.

    So, that’s my first impression of the guy. Maybe if you repeat “genuinely good-natured” a few more times, I’ll wake up from the nightmares before the gory parts.

  40. Correct me if I am wrong, but if the Jets win. Won’t this be the first ever all-wildcard superbowl?? Crazy. This is totally bringing me back to the ’96 superbowl.

  41. @Ulrike Tannenberg

    I think this the information you were looking for concerning the music:
    Episode: Divided
    Music Artist: Brand New
    Album:The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
    Song Title: You Won’t Know
    00:00:46 – 00:02:42 (TV) At the beginning of the episode

    Hope this is the song you were looking for


  42. Yikes! I’m not watching the playoffs because I can’t take the stress, but I can still hear people shrieking and cheering and howling all over the neighborhood every time the Steelers make a play. Now my tummy is even more twisty from the stress, eep!

  43. @Das: I will tell you what is motivating the lawyers: Taxpayer dollars that they get to make their living. His particular lawyer has made over $1 million since he recommended the special education director for her job (I have the application of employment to prove this–not just speculating). Then multiple that by a large number of school districts. They use fear to manipulate the school districts most of the time. In some cases like in the case of our school district, it is just payback for recommendation. Talk about a conflict of interest. These people were named in a political racketeering/false claims act lawsuit in 2007 but did any of them lose their jobs? No, they did not. Here is the second problem. Rob Eissler, also named in that lawsuit, happens to be the representative to the state legislature. I’m not going to get any help from him. He started with a position on the school board. I tried several times to engage them over the last several years and his office never called me back. Our state senator’s office told me they could not get involved (could not send someone from their office, not the senator, but the hired help) to my meeting.

    It’s politics as usual in Texas. A woman in Eanes ISD , another school district in Texas, connected the dots that would make your head spin:

    It’s not about the kids. It’s all about them.
