    It’s not the one about the 2 little pigs and the big bad mammoth?

    Could be. But, for a change, one of the pigs wins instead of the mammoth.

    Did the cave women all have beards? Or does this cave child have two fathers?

    This is why writers go on strike – always under pressure to produce more, faster.

    Once upon a time in a cave with softly flickering torch light, the beasts on the shadowy walls seemed to move… and the adventure began anew.

    I remember those days. The scream of the modem. The slow crawl of the download bar. The dread of a loss connection after an hour or more of download commitment. Don’t miss them a bit.

    Why is it that the more leisure time we gain, the more impatient we become to fill it faster ?

    If this is Florida, the story will have to be OK’d by Ronny Whiteboot’s thought police before it can be read to children.

    This just in from the ACLU:

    This morning – in a win for free expression on the internet – the Supreme Court unanimously protected our right to free speech on online platforms in two key rulings.

    Here’s what to know about both:

    → In Twitter v. Taamneh: The Court ruled that when companies like Twitter, Google, and Facebook simply provide a platform that’s open to anyone for speech purposes, that isn’t enough to “aid and abet” an act of terrorism under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

    → In Gonzalez v. Google: SCOTUS sent the case back to the court of appeals, leaving in place the vital protections for free speech afforded by Section 230. Under Section 230, platforms generally won’t be held liable for user-posted content, removing incentives to limit what we say online.

    an acquaintance brought a low-power wifi/cell signal jammer, and plugged it in and set it on her desk at the beginning of each class. about halfway through the year, she just randomly turned it on once or twice a week. her kids scored really well on SOLs.

    Wiley kids – love ‘em. But I’d like to know what “The day I killed a Mammoth” is going to be written on, and is it suitable for children?
