        hard to parse, but my confusion predated your diary :)

        We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.

          I put up a superbly written diary on reflective practice in teaching and it got almost no traffic, while this admittedly not all that well written post has been on the rec list for hours.

            up the other one :) You have to expect that more people are involved in politics than in teaching on this site.

            Thoughtful writing isn't always easy, especially when the slow fingers won't keep up with the lighning-quick mind.  Meant it as a playful but snarky comment.

            Your diaries are always worth reading.  As son and brother of teachers, I admire your thoughtfulness and your profession.
