Not the Right "Fit" But The Right Guy

Joanne Jacobs has the story of Junior High School 22 in the Bronx, a largely Hispanic and black school with a Hasidic Jew principal, whose tactics include "classic counterinsurgency tactics" and the fact that his first langauge is Spanish.

Imagine that, perhaps instead of trying to cater to teh identity of students you start to implement discipline to help them learn. Whoda thunk?

This is not spam or an advertisement.

If you're recieving this email, this means that I've personally read your blog and think that you're a good writer. I want to invite you to join and blog at my site,, which is a new political social networking site.

We are looking for featured columnists to put in the front. I will eventually have 6 permanent columnists and 2 rotating columnists. The 6 will comprise of 2 liberals, 2 Conservatives, 1 independent and 1 satire/humor writer. The site is about 80% done, there are still some customizations we need to do for function and design. That should be wrapped up in the coming month.

In the beginning there will be no payment as we are a startup. But if you contribute to the site regularly (1-2X a week) and are a featured columnist, then I am open to a payoff if the site does become big. Also, if the site does become popular, by virtue of having your writing and picture on the front page of the site, will allow you to gain a great deal of exposure and publicity.

Please come by and check us out.
