"If they're going to die, they'd better hurry up and do it, and decrease the surplus population!" --Dickens, paraphrased (poorly), "A Christmas Carol" As for those two shuffling off this mortal coil, the sooner the quicker, I say...
Canada won't take them, though...
Moose and Squirrel endorse McFadden, say Franken is as bad as their worst pun...Franken endorsed by Fearless Leader, uses Boris and Natasha to launch "Fiendish Plan" to re-elect him... If Minnesota re-elects Franken, they should be exiled from the Union and given to Canada--and tell Canadians that we'll go to war with them if they don't accept them!

That, I believe, is the rub; it's how we're teaching as opposed to WHAT we're teaching. I'm a credentialed HS math teacher who's also done tutoring to grade-school kids, and I use manipulatives (e.g. poker chips, with the color indicating place value) to illustrate carry and borrow. Theoretically, "count up" could be used, but the traditional methods are still best; I also believe in "drill and kill", as the individual algorithms can be internalized with enough rehearsal. In short, let's explain the "why" enough to justify the "what", then practice the "what" to mastery.

Jeff Foxworthy said it best in "Blue Collar Comedy Tour Strikes Back", during the "I Believe" segment: "I believe that if you can't say something nice about someone, you must be talking about Hillary Clinton." Standing O. 'Nuff said...
Say what you will about G.W. Bush--yes, he did spend too much--but he truly LED when the country, and the world, needed him to do so. If he could have had balanced budgets he might have even been Reaganesque. Our current president? The evidence screams for itself...
"Don't do stupid s--t"; where have we heard that before? This time, though, it IS a valid course of action! Just like Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No!" Works every time it's tried...
