A gentle reminder ...

The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

... and now for something completely different ...

Achelous and Hercules by Thomas Hart Benton (1947)
As I wind down the Presidential Academy, I'm prepping for the Smithsonian's teacher institute. They've asked me to select a peice of art in their collection to research. This is the one I've selected. Its called Achelous and Hercules by Thomas Hart Benton. I'll tell ya'll more about it later.

BTW-when I say winding down, I mean sprint. Tomorrow and Wednesday, we spend most of the two days at the Capitol taking private tours and sessions in the Senate (tomorrow) and House of Representatives (Wednesday). I'm sure the debt ceiling will be a subject of discussion. We start at 6 a.m. and won't be finished either day until 9 p.m.
