Just when you think you've heard it all, as the rest of the country moves forward with the increasing rigor of the Common Core Standards for education, the Texas GOP has proposed a ban on the teaching of critical thinking skills.  I kid you not.  Read about it here.  If you haven't already seen Stephen Colbert's hysterical take on this, you should.  The Colbert clip has been making its way around the internet and cracking-up those who actually do think critically.
Happy reading and thinking,
