Topics for the rest of the week:
Wed – MAKE SCHOOL TOUGHER TO IMPROVE BEHAVIOR?
Th – ARE BOOKSTORES RELEVANT?
Fri – WHAT’S IN A (MIDDLE) NAME?
There will be a new Open Thread started on Memorial Day and assigned topics for the rest of that week. There is now a tentative full slate of posts for an entire month, (Way to go!! ) The tentative schedule is adjusted on the fly to balance serious vs light, insert new submissions that enhance the set list, and to push back any that duplicate a long tangential discussion. The goal is to be fully scheduled for three-four weeks out at all times.
Just in case there is still confusion about submitting posts that include links to sites behind a paywall. All submissions are welcome to either administrator. If the link is behind a paywall (other than the NYT), please provide excerpts or a summary in the body of the post OR send me (Mémé) an email with a link I can access and I’ll do the work of selecting excerpts. Some readers don’t choose to establish an email relationship at all, or want to stick with July only. The Suggest Posts page is for everyone’s convenience.
Also, topics presented on Suggest Topics or via email ready to go as posts will likely end up in the queue earlier than a statement in the regular thread or on Suggest Topics along the lines of, why don’t we have a post about x topic.
