SO brazen! The Governor and other elected officials caused Philly's school budget crisis, and now they're expecting teachers to pay for it. This morning, Philadelphia's unelected version of a school board voted in a secret meeting to cancel the teachers' contract, with no notice or input from the teachers. If you can stomach it, here's an article full of their Shock Doctrine rationales and blatant double-speak.

Utopia is a combination of three greek words; Eu (good), Ou (not), and Topos (place). Utopia translated is “good not place”. It is important to remember, as a “not place,” it is impossible to arrive at utopia. The reason we imagine utopias is to provide a point on the compass that orients us on our travels. Without utopia, we’re lost – we are traveling without direction, guessing and hoping that we are moving forward. The purpose of utopia is not a destination, it is to give us direction so we can progress.
