A couple of things...

Your blog entry for the week is below.

We are starting to interweave some poetry into our work. I love Billy Collins and Schoolsville is one of the poems you may respond to this week. If you love cool websites as much as I do, check this out: www.bcactionpoet.org It is a website of animated Billy Collins poems. Awesome stuff!

Also - regarding the poll from last week, I have matched the answers with the political philosophy. You can click on the wiki link to learn more about this. Obviously, these are generalities and by no means, proscriptive.

WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS BEST REPRESENTS YOUR VIEW OF HOW GOVERNMENT SHOULD OPERATE?

1) Government should seek to preserve the status quo, while making only gradual or necessary changes. New policies and change should be done by individuals or businesses. (11%) Conservatism

2) Government should minimally interfere with individual rights and government should be limited to maximize liberty. The more government, the less freedom. 19 (54%) Libertarianism

3) Government should work fully and actively, regardless of cost and size, to create equality in economics and other social areas (healthcare, welfare, education, etc.) 9 (25%) Socialism

4) Government should work to change values and traditions as needed. This should apply to values as well as economics. 3 (8%) Liberal Progressivism
