What bloggers need, Michael Bloomberg prophesied last year, is a “wake-up call.” Joel Klein agreed: “If you’re not making progress, if your [posts] are not moving forward, then I don’t think the [blog] is doing well.” Jim Liebman couldn’t have agreed more: "“When you say, we’re going to hold you to the best that other [blogs] like you can do, all of a sudden, [there are] no more excuses.”

skoolboy, as you all already know, is that pesky curvebreaker in your calculus class. An A+ for you, skoolboy, and a hearty thanks for relieving me from blogging for my conference/vacation.

And I’m a huge fan of skoolboy’s report card contest - don’t forget to enter! If you are lazy, you can just hit the diagonals (i.e. what percent of schools that received As will still receive As, what percent of schools that received Bs will still receive Bs, etc). As for prizes, I am still working on it. A pony? The right to choose Joel Klein’s costume in this year’s Halloween Parade?

Got ideas? Let me know.
