February 26, 2010

This episode of the Simpsons begins with the Simpsons family playing a good old game of scrabble. Lisa, the family genius, makes fun of Bart for making up an misspelling words and Homer chases Bart off in a rage as usual. The next day Bart has a big intelligence test which apparently he hasn’t studied for, so sneakily he switches the tests with Martin, the most intelligent kid in class. After vandalizing school property, the principle has a meeting with Homer and Marge to discuss a fine they have to pay because of the damage, and the school psychiatrist labels Bart a genius and sends him to the Enriched Learning Center for the “Gifted”. After all this, Homer and Marge thinks Bart is a boy genius and Homer starts treating Bart with much more respect than usual. Meanwhile Bart soon realizes he doesn’t fit in with the other geniuses in the class and blows up his chemistry lab from lack of knowledge. Finally he confesses that he cheated on the test and gets sent back to Springfield Elementary School, and Homer goes back to tormenting him.

Ward Churchill

February 15, 2010

The University of Colorado did the right thing by launching an investigation against Ward Churchill. As a creditable University, they have every right to investigate and know whats going on in their classrooms. Having said that, I do also feel that a teacher also has the right to say what they choose in their classroom if it pertains to the direction there going towards as far as their agenda in teaching the course. Whether supporting America or saying that America’s policies had a part in influencing 9/11, these are both opinions and someone shouldn’t get fired over choosing one side. As long as Ward Churchill was speaking freely and wasn’t promoting violence, he should be able to say what ever he chooses. This is a professor here people, i mean, he has some what knowledge and understanding of what he’s talking about. Right??
