I thought that public employees were supposed to be "public servants" and were there to serve the public. And as such we to be held to a higher standard. Obviously I go that all worn.

(02/15/2016) 'Anti-Beyonce Protest Rally' planned for NFL. Somehow I am not surprised about the content of it, given who was the star. The NFL should be ashamed. This was more offensive than a 'wardrobe malfunction.'

While it is true that 11 is the correct answer if you are calculating in base 11 rather than base 10, unless the problem states it is base 11, 11 is simply incorrect.

(01/20/2016) Nearly 10% of College Grads Think Judge Judy Serves on SCOTUS. And I'm not even going to link to the video of people on the beach in San Diego who don't know what country Mount Rushmore is in. Although I am shocked that so many people who know so little actually vote, I am even more shocked that our education system manages to churn out such people in apparently increasing numbers. Here is more on the topic: James O’Keefe’s Common Core Videos Are Just The Tip Of The Iceberg.
