“Given the national attention focused on Gov. Sam Brownback in recent months, his State of the State address Thursday night could be the Word of the Day at Dictionary.com – internuncial: serving to announce or connect.”

Gov. Sam Brownback’s education plan for Kansas generates anxiety and anticipation
“Some fear the Kansas governor is forcing school districts to pick up additional costs while telling them to make do with an unconstitutional funding level.”

Rolling Stone names President Obama ‘One of the Most Successful Presidents in American History’
“President Obama graces the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone. In the mag, Nobel Prize- winning economist Paul Krugman wrote an amazing piece in defense of President Obama’s presidency. ”

Stale zaniness 048

Yesterday as Denton and Hannah assembled a KALLAX / LEKMAN shelf unit with eight inserts to replace a desk in their living room, I stood in a “‘genkan,’ the low area near the front door where Japanese people leave their shoes before entering,” and wondered what the word was.
