Did you do your homework?

30 minutes of reading
Spelling, wb. p. 92
Math, wb. p. H7-8 and Review 1-10 Sciencedrill
test Thursday (Unit B, Chapter
Math test Thursday (Chapter 7)

This is my daughter’s 3rd grade homework assignment. All teachers (grades 1-8 ) are to post the homework for that day on the Internet.
I guess the days are gone when your mom or dad would ask you if you have any homework and you might say something like “no not really”. Now the parents check on line just to make sure. I’m not sure if I like this idea or not. I don’t know why but I just feel a little funny when my wife or myself double check and make sure my daughters homework statements are accurate. Or maybe I’m making too big of deal out of this.

Lock Your Doors Everybody Martha Stewart Is Out Of Jail

I know this is the no agenda zone but I have to say something about Martha Stewart.
As everyone knows she was just released from prison. I just heard she will be under house arrest for 5 months and have to wear an electronic ankle bracelet to track her every move. Doesn’t this seem like a little much? Are they afraid she might break into someone’s house and start decorating without the owner’s approval? I am not a fan of Martha Stewart. I never watched her TV shows and I don’t shop at Kmart. I have also heard she is very hard to work with and is sometimes very nasty to her employees. Having said all this, is it just me or did this whole thing seem kind of like a witch-hunt?
I know she lied to the feds about a stock deal and of course should be punished for this. I just think a couple of years of community service plus a stiff fine with the money going to some charity would have made more sense. But who am I to Judge?
