“The distinction between complex thinking / right-answer thinking increasingly defines the difference between elite educational opportunity and education of the rest.”"If the SAT Were a Key to All Mythology" by Monica Cohen
"How five crows managed to lift a twenty-pound baby boy into the air was beyond Prue, but that was certainly the least of her worries. In fact, if she were to list her worries right then and there as she sat spellbound on the park bench and watched her little brother, Mac, carried aloft in the talons of these five black crows, puzzling out just how this feat was being done would likely come in dead last. First on the list: Her baby brother, her responsibility, was being abducted by birds. A close second: What did they plan on doing with him?
And it had been such a nice day."
