Here are the required summer readings for the local government middle school this summer:


In case you can’t see them:



No stories of Henry Ford or Josiah Wedgewood or even Isaac Newton. Nope. The government schools turning kids into little activists and accepting unquestioned the “science” of a pop book on food. And I’m paying for it. That’s exactly why wages are stagnating and why technological advancement is slowing down and why inner cities are crippled and rotting … we just haven’t produced enough activists.

Meanwhile the kids in our school will be writing journals all summer, will be continuing to learn manners, respect and real leadership. Oh and a little math and history too.

By the way, people send me things. A former student of mind sent me this with an “uh-oh.” Then a loyal reader sends me this. “Uh oh” indeed.

Read that Buzzfeed piece closely. It is boilerplate. More on that soon.

  1. Prof,

    NPR had a good piece yesterday debunking the Buzzfeed article. It’s bad enough that Buzzfeed basically plagiarizes content from user-submission based sites like Reddit, they push fault science too.

    Here’s another “uh-oh” article, from Rolling Stone. A hypothetical, fairly fanatic, article about who South Florida is “doomed” to be the next Atlantis.

    Note the subtle jabs at the city, references to drugs, etc. Because it’s still the 1980s after all.
