Wonderful Life

I love this cover of Black's Wonderful Life by Smith & Burrows. It can be a wonderful life if you let it, can it not?

Atlas Shrugged - Part III

Part three of the trilogy debuts in one week. Watch for it in a theater near you.

How do you spell English?

This head-scratcher was posed to me by my son while doing his homework last night. Instead of my stock "How do you think it's spelled?" response I was kind of mystified and said to him, "Come on, you have English every day in school, you must see the word all the time and know how to spell it. For crying out loud it's one of your core subjects."

He replied, "No daddy, it's called Language Arts."

I didn't know what to say. It's English. I've seen it and they are learning how to use the English language. There are no other languages involved, there is no art as far as I can tell, just grammar, spelling, etc. He has Art and it's entirely another subject and grade. Oh well, perhaps if they called it what it is, maybe he would know how to spell it. Just saying.
