Texas inspiration

You had to have been asleep at the screen to have missed the Doug/George Johnson episode last week on ed blogs. Lots of passion there.

But that's nothing compared to what I'm reading from Miguel Guhlin and Wesley Fryer. What are they putting in the water down there in Texas, anyway? These two are writing just some inspired stuff right now. How do they do it? Wish I had the way with the word they have. I'll just have to settle for sharing their passion. Some examples:

Censored for relevance (and here)- Fryer
Put Fear Aside - Guhlin
(edited on 4/16/06, as Miguel has just redone his blog, and articles previously listed here are no more)

They also have left provocative thoughts and supportive encouragements in comments all over the place, in many discussions, very much enriching this cool space. Miguel left this for me after a downer post I wrote about MySpace:

Blog in the face of oppression, speak truth to power even though it isn't effective. These acts may not change the environment you're in, but they will change you. And, changing you is all you CAN do. . .it is the most powerful transformation you can model for your children, as well as your students and colleagues.

Thanks, guys!
