Black History Month

Whilst I'm all about giving people the recognition they deserve, I have mixed feelings about BHM. Do we Chinese History Month? Or Irish? Hungarian? Women's? (OK, you got me there)

But it's on TV, and probably a few Hallmark Cards, so it must be a valid, um, holiday observance thingy, right?

But I digress, again.

Pete has just informed me that every Wednesday the kids in her class celebrate BHM by "finding a story about an African American in the paper. Then we read the article and tell why that person is important."

Heh heh...I was tempted to tell her to look for Al Sharpton in the news today....heh heh
