This article – Why Early Learning Does Not Help – is excellent, albeit looooong. It contains some very firm language, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. For example –

• This is high-larious – Toddlers are A**holes. I’m not swearing, I’m just quoting. And anyway, it’s true.

This is interesting, but the one sentence that really speaks to me is this one –

“Why do something hard today when you can do it easy tomorrow?”

• This I loved. Won Over by the Battlefield.

• I know Neil deGrass Tyson has a lot of loyal followers, which is probably why I find this whole business about him lying/fabricating/embellishing in his speeches AND his subsequent efforts to silence everyone who points it out so intriguing.

**I know it’s not Monday. I was busy.
