Biochemical Slang is for the Children.


Our kids look good these days. Fresh kicks. Fresh hat. Gold. If our exam scores included realness, flatness of hat brims, and Lacoste shirts, we'd be beating those damn Asian countries. Those tests are culturally biased. What's math-em-at-icks?

As we wonder what happened with Foley and his entourage of pages, our kids are gettin' dumberer. As midterm elections approach, reactionary politics takes over. Preemptive politics died years ago. It doesn't grab your attention.

2/3 of New York state kids are proficient in math! Yes! As our kids got older, they steady got dumberer! Our kids demonstrated an 80% math proficiency in third grade, but a 50 % proficiency by eighth grade. NYC is at 57% proficiency and Chancellor Joel Klein added, "Today’s math results, I think, represent real progress." If you're meter stick is an inch long, ANYTHING will look like progress.

Klein added, “While we went down, we went down much less.” If you're meter stick is a centimeter, shit's LOOKIN' GOOD.

Where are my people at? In Africa gettin' their kufi and turban on. Gettin' streets named after them. "Leakin" their million dollar songs. Selling their million dollar clothes. Fuck Dear Summer. Where's Dear Summer School?

Hi,

been meaning to give you the headz up for quite a while now. I think the way you're combining cultural and polictical criticism with popular culture and music is really unique. Your political comments are really insightful and sharp, they make your blog such a great and unique read. Keep up the good work!
