I’ve been thinking about “the common good” quite a bit of late and of the country, education, how we spend our collective money, and the “bribe” that is called an economic stimulus.

I received notice of my “stimulus payment” today. OK, everyone would like a little extra money, but being trillions of dollars in debt, cutting funding to education, health care … somehow I don’t feel I need this money.

So I’ve decided that I’ll take it and put it where it is needed. I’m donating my payment to CAST to further the great work they are doing with our students at
Julian Middle School.
