Thanks, all.  The wife and I had a good talk about this last night, and the info you provided helped.  I need to look at the text of the ballot question to confirm if the cap rally is only being lifted on urban centers.

For some reason, I keep losing the bookmark to the page with all the "in my day" childhood memes; the ones that were like "in my day we didn't wear helmets while biking -- because the kids with massive brain trauma can't post online."

Anyone remember where that went?

I like no longer being in constant chronic pain.

To be clear: he's coming under fire, and not the hideously racist treatment?

This is relevant due to ballot questions.

Simply put, there's a question whether to raise the charter school cap on underperforming (read: urban/minority) districts.

The above study says that charter schools have been shown to help urban students, but have no-to-negative impact on suburban (white) students.

I started out against the idea of more charter schools, for several, kinda thought out, reasons.  But this evidence, added to the language of the ballot, is persuading my otherwise.

Any thoughts on the validity of the Brookings Institute, this study, or charter schools in general?

To be fair, it's probably you.

Somehow, Discordia has been discovered by the alt-right, and they made their own little nest.

I mean sure, everyone's a discordian, and we all have our own Discordia, but that doesn't mean I want to have dinner with them.

If you're interested in buying the debt, why not do both?

The overhead on Mr Chop and Mr Scratch isn't worth it, to be quite honest.

That's as good an ending as could be hoped for.  Glad you're all together.

Oatmeal is a comic.  They did a card game that was Kickstarted and completely obliterated their goal very quickly.

May be preferable, as they probably will be more willing to help than to co-opt and steal the idea, as Jackson might.

Oh, lord.  Does he need to go to the VFW hall for the talk, or is he all good?

For the first time in 5 years, I have my whole family together again.  :banana:
