This is the requisite "Is anybody out there?" post, since I haven't posted to this blog in a year and a day (which is, in this case, exact). I will not be posting actual content tonight, but my "Education in the US" class has been provoking a good deal of thought, some of which I would like to write about a) in order to solidify it for myself and b) because I think it's important and I would like it to reach anyone it can in any way it can. Look for updates shortly!
