“I am endlessly intrigued by relationships, particularly by the gap between what people say and what they truly feel, and the gap between what they do and what they really want." From a New York Times interview with novelist and psychotherapist Amy Bloom, who was born today.

Former Colorado Education Commissioner William Moloney's columns have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Washington Post, Philadelphia Inquirer and the Baltimore Sun. He write today in the Rocky Mountain News about education reform in Colorado, and the foot dragging now taking place. I posted this comment online:

What is the solution? I'm going to read this column to my Optimist Club, make it the topic for discussion today (Wed, June 18). Join us, especially if you are a teacher, parent, or administrator with an idea about how Optimist Clubs, who's main focus is being of service to youth, could help with this problem.

Denver South Optimist Club, Perkin's, Colorado Blvd and Buchtel (just South of I25 & Colorado), Noon to 1:15 p.m. $15, includes lunch.

Read Moloney's column, then post your comment. What do you think can be done about getting schools back on track here in Colorado?
