Weekend review

If you were out of town enjoying a long weekend at the beach or the mountains you may have missed reading these two commentaries from NC Policy Watch.

While your Labor Day celebrations are still fresh in your memory, I encourage you to read Rob Schofield’s commentary “American Capitalism Day“, in which he suggests a different kind of remembrance:

Rather than merely celebrating or remembering a movement from a different era, the idea would be to dedicate a day of our lives to honestly examining, praising, and questioning the economic system that connects us all today.

In preparation for President Obama’s educational address tomorrow, you should read Chris Fitzsimon’s “Friday’s Folly” making jest of the right-wing’s overreaction.
