Just found this blog (thanks Joanne Jacobs!). In the year or so that I've been reading blogs
I've felt over and over that I was hearing the distant echo of Richard Mitchel, who, with his
printing press, was perhaps the original (if analog) edublogger. I'm glad to see that someone
has finally placed his name and a snippet of his writing out here.

Glad Joanne Jacobs pointed me to the old perfesser... I think he would approve of my cumudgeonly ways, even though I wear lace-up Birkenstocks in the classroom (Weejuns to conferences and meetings) and bowties. On the former, they enable me to stay on my feet on a terazzo floor all day, and on the latter, cute girls walk right up and adjust them, plus Winston Churchill wore 'em.
I even use a term I pirated from a Mizzou professor, "perky teacher stuff." (Stuff is my G-rated noun...) He was describing the national certification procedures--now there's a program that's making a difference in the education of kids, but I digress. Thanks for keeping "Kindredspiritville" on line, MEN
