The Dominos

Remember how about six weeks ago I wrote about doing a little 15 second tv Q and A about testing?  Well come to find out, someone saw me on that and asked me to speak at a community forum.  Then a radio guy saw me at that and now he's coming over here to interview me for a radio spot today.  He's coming in about 5 minutes and I'm pretty nervous because sometimes I get tongue tied with on the spot questions.  I'm much better when I can plan stuff out. Anyway, the point is, there's a real domino effect to speaking out against injustice.  And that can be kind of nerve wracking.  I'm going to try to re-assemble our old whole language group next year, so that we can share these jobs.  It's more powerful when there's a variety of voices.  I think the media's waking up and wanting to investigate some of these unfair educational mandates.
Do you like morel mushrooms?  I think they're super beautiful.  And tasty.

Go Dr. H! I think you speak eloquently. Let me know when the radio spot will air-- it's not live is it?

No, it's not live. The guy just left. I really flubbed my way through that. I told him at the end that I'm pretty good with prepared remarks, but not so great with q and a and he said, "No, you did pretty well." Obviously that means I sucked. Oh well. Whatever.

Thanks for coming by MG!

The more I think about it, the less confident I feel about the interview. But it's all in the past, and I have to move on. Still, I'm irked.
