In the meantime, here are a few new things I'd like to point you to:
- A new group blog about economics, called Simply Capitalism, featuring some of my favorite bloggers. YAY.
- The hero of the day at Heroes of Capitalism is, of course, Ayn Rand (today is her birthday)!
- In California, a school nurse association sued to prevent non-medical personnel (teachers and other staff) from helping diabetic students do their insulin injections. They won. MOST schools in California do NOT have full-time nurses (if any). How are these kids supposed to do their shots? Look--I've done this. It's not rocket science here. If the personnel want to be trained, and the parents and child are comfortable allowing this, then why in the world?!?!?!?
- In Georgia, SB 60 has been introduced and reads in part:
so as to authorize each local board of education to determine the maximum age of mandatory education from 16 to 18 for its local school systemGeorgia parents of school-aged students--schooled and homeschooled--we need to be on this one quick. I just read about this today. Expect a more complete objection when I've had time to think about it some more. But, in a word, NO. We do not want this.
That's all for now.
