"A child's learning is the function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher." James Coleman, 1972

. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966

My Last Look at The Last Word

When I heard that the centerfold for the Hemlock Society calendar, Ann Coulter, was going to be Lawrence O'Donnell's guest tonight, I decided to give him 60 seconds on this one.  I stopped at 45.  This is entirely an unjustified waste of any air time or my time for a show that is even vaguely billed as political news and information.  For a show that pretends that political news and information is its primary content, this intrusion by Coulter's gallows nitwiticisms is unforgivable.

Who else do they have over there at Microsoft-NBC who can never replace Olberman?
