I like languages so the logic that sounds have letters instead of letters having sounds was intuitive to me. After I had taught son to read I saw Diane McGuinniss' Why Children Can't Read and What We Can Do About It from 1997. She is a cognitive psychologist and has since written this program https://www.amazon.com/Sound-Steps-Reading-Storybook-Sound-Targeting/dp/1425187900

that systematically lays out the logic.

A parent who gets the logic or a grandparent can easily teach your oldest how to read systematically while interspersing with great stories. Mine always adored the 398.2 stories from all over the world. Patricia Coombs' outstanding Dorrie books, everything Bill Peet wrote, and the Jane Yolen Piggins the butler mysteries just to start.

A phonetically fluent reader who has learned books can have wonderful stories is set for life and essentially immune from all the things I write about and know are in the works. As your daughter knows so well, it rewires the brain for good and it won't be the contrived neural net competency-based ed under its various synonyms has in mind otherwise.

Son also loved the Eloise at the Plaza books, which is funny in retrospect. Red wanted to learn to read just to be able to read Jane yolen's catwings books to herself. I still remember when she was 2 and she brought me the Dr Seuss book about Barthalomew and the Oobleck and she was trying to pronounce that strange word.

She left out the 'luh' sound.

So that happened last night.....

Captain Hate

wavering Trump supporters

In Iowa, Trump won with over 97% of the vote and set a turnout record for an incumbent president.

In New Hampshire, he received nearly 130,000 votes, more than doubling the totals of former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush in their reelection campaigns.

And in Texas, Trump received nearly 1.9 million votes, more than tripling what Obama received in 2012.

Bottoms up, Peggy.

--Iggy,

Are you registered at The Spectator because I couldn't read that link about the low amount of flu deaths.--

Nope. Occasionally one gets through. I tried to read three others, but no-go.

But in the flu death category, I'd like to note new "cases" [h/t SUG] hit an all time record yesterday of almost 45,000.
And yet deaths somehow continue to decline, logging one hundred deaths lower this Friday than last and the lowest Friday total since late March.

Reposting from previous thread:


In Nov of 2009, the college-age daughter of my kids’ 7th grade teacher caught H1N1, then double pneumonia followed by ARDS. She spent 2.5 months in a coma, and we were all praying for her to recover. She had a tough row of rehab after she came out of the coma, but last fall she was saying that it all seemed like a bad dream.

Well she tested positive for COVID on Sunday. (She was the first new case in 10 days.) Then Thursday we heard she was hospitalized, which if true would only be the second hospitalization in the county. Then yesterday morning the story from her business partner (they are hair stylists) was that her mom was hospitalized too, which didn’t sound right because the last positive test in a female 60-80 was June 5.

Well yesterday’s health department announcement was two new cases, one male one female, both 60-80. (This brings the total of cases to 135, with 8 females and 7 males over 60.) And our assistant pastor (who is only ordained a year and I think is 27 or 28) announced that he’s in quarantine after contact with an infected parishioner in their town. (He was announcing what masses we have to cancel for the next two weeks because of his quarantine.) I haven’t heard any news yet, but am now wondering if yesterday’s cases are her mom AND dad.

This is what happens when you flatten the curve and lengthen it too much. It’s what happens when we waste quarantining resources on stupid low-risk karens and their low-risk children and all of the low-risk sheeple who give in to the hectoring of the karens. We are in a race against time where we need to protect the vulnerable while we let the infection rage through the low-risk. We can’t isolate the high-risk and their caretakers forever, so enough of the low-risk need to get infected and recovered so that they will form a firebreak around the vulnerable. Infecting the low-risk is like lighting a backfire, and the covidiots are pouring water on the backfire.

Good Lord! I just ate breakfast and I read this ready to barf paragraph:

Doing nothing, saying nothing, and hiding in the basement bunker while Trump digs his own grave is a very appealing strategy. It's not leadership, but it may be Biden's the safest path to victory.

Trump digs his own grave? And of course cowardly, dementia Joe wings his way to victory while babbling in his basement bunker about half of the U.S. population having died of COV-19.

Perhaps these comments should come with footnotes or astrological signs so that the reader can have some guide posts to determine if the writer has a clue about what is actually occurring in this nation today.

For $75k/yr you probably could rent this place and find another Miss Kelley

https://nchistory.org/the-little-red-schoolhouse/

Opening its doors in 1868, this Carter Street treasure was Connecticut’s last operating one-room schoolhouse when it closed in 1957. Acquired by the Society in 2003, it was restored thanks to the generous support of Society members, nonprofit groups, former students and friends.

Longtime Schoolmistress Mary J. Kelley, who studied there in the 1890s and went on to earn a teaching certificate, was a “loving but strict” presence there for 47 years. The Kelley family home is just a stone’s throw from her classroom.

Like the Rock School, the small room centered around the pot-bellied stove, with rows of slanted desks screwed to the wood-plank floor. Some 30 children from first through fifth grades received instruction under the watchful eyes of Miss Kelley. Former students recall that she encouraged independent study, offered remedial lessons and provided individual instruction.

Each day began with the flag-raising and Bible readings. In fact, Miss Kelley’s core values centered on prayer, patriotism and discipline. But fun was built into the day as well: Old-fashioned games, nature walks, and marching around the room with a book on your head to practice posture.

Numerous former students share their reminiscences on site as docents, by appointment.

No, Jim; she's saying that Sundown is staying quiet as a deliberate strategy of not countering Trump and ignoring that he's suffering from dementia. She's just as bad as every other propagandist.

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Longtime correspondent (and Dem operative) Karen Tumulty recently made the case that debates are old fashioned, thus working to create space for Biden to drop from participating.

Maybe Noonan is being just as devious by advocating that Biden show bold leadership. Yeah. Could be a 4D chess move to smoke him out.

James D.

TM, if you’re reading the comments, I have an honest question:

Why DO you loathe Trump so, and do you honestly think that a Dem in the White House, given the current insanity of their party (which you have commented on very often) is something we can survive as a solvent country that’s a halfway decent place to live?

One more question: considering how often you point out that the NYT and WaPo are full of crap and totally dishonest and not even competent (both in editorial opinion and in reporting of news); why do you accept all the awful things they say about the President at face value?

I’m honestly curious. I want to understand.

Old Lurker

CH “that sawed off piece of boomer shit Fauci.”

Actually, at 79 he was born in say 1941, conceived in 1940 so not only not a boomer, his father was probably not serving.

Hi Barb
Well the little scum sucking weasel must hide in a cellar since anytime Biden opens his fat stupid mouth it raises suspicions he’s a dementia sufferer being used as a political pawn so that whoever is picked as VP should the lying snake win would earn dictator status
I can’t stand him but why would his wife allow it? It’s elder abuse
This was all orchestrated !! The whole effing shebang
May they all rot in hell
Thank God for JOM & David Horowitz
Recently, they played a bio of Justice Thomas and watching Biden speak at the Anita lied hearing brought back bad memories of why I left that sick disgusting party for good
My lib relatives have now reached mass crazed TDS capacity Sad to say
Trump is out there alone whacking back at any volley thrown to him
Where the hell are these so called GOP leaders calling these snakes out for what they are? I’d do it all for free as loud as I could!! But people are afraid of getting assaulted & whacked by 2x4’s
Makes me want to hurl anytime I see a missed opportunity go out to sea while the freaking antifa BLM fascists racists & commies create their deadly destructive summer of love with the MSM fools egg them on
This isnt going to end until it is stopped!!
This nation needs to push back In a big way & I do think it’s time I get protection
Take care

I don't think Biden has to worry about taking a position on police reform, because he's not going to be the nominee. He'll be Toricellied before the end of summer.

Jane

So the dead guy at the pool thinks Cuomo is the greatest thing on earth. I asked him what he thought about him putting all those people in nursing homes and they died. He replied "that was Trump". I said no, Trump provided hospitals Cuomo refused to use, preferring nursing homes. He asked: How did they get there? Train, plane automobile? I told him ambulance.

He then laughed and said if 1/2 the things I believed were true, the country would be over.

He went on to say Trump is making this a socialist country and he opposes that, which is why he will vote for Biden who does not have Dementia.

Old Lurker

Ext, a Toricelli would be the front door approach. A Trojan Horse VP would be the backdoor solution.

Either way, Biden will not be POTUS for very long if at all.

MissMarple2

Whew!Dozed off and had a doozy of a nightmare where I put a load of laundry in the laundromat at the mall (which I don't even know if it's there anymore) and then got lost wlking around and couldn't find it to retreive it, bumping in to high school classmates and ex-boyfriends.

Needless to say, I woke unrested, and we are having a thunderstorm, too. So I made myself a cup of coffee.

I pay no attention to what Peggy Noonan says, as she is as perceptive about President Trump as Bill Kristol.

Mike_H,

My youngest sis (4 yrs older) and I are probably the last of a dying population of kids who went to a one-room school. Ours was at the edge of our ranch property about a half-mile walk from the ranch house (up hill both ways!). I did a limited pre-school and then 1st and half 2nd grade before we sold out. There was one kid in 4th and the all the rest were 5-7 grade. Maybe 8 kids total. The school was built around 1900 and was one of a very few across south central MT. I found a pix of the class from circa 1906 which included the patriarch of the ranch down the road who’s two youngest boys were in my ‘class’ as 6th and 7th graders.

Two subsequent effects of that early life: 1) the next three months after coming out of the hills were spent mostly in bed as I contracted about every childhood disease serially from attending a large grade school in Spokane, and 2) when we finally arrived at the farm town down near Glasater they wanted to bump me up a grade because I was way ahead of the other kids. I passed on that offer as I instinctively figured I’d be the odd kid out. (More than usual.)

Those are interesting questions, Jane. Lightning is what happens when charged particles in the atmosphere go to ground and the thunder is the exploding sound it makes, I think (I'll look it up later). What my parents used to call heat lightning is when the sky lights up in the distance from so far away that the thunder sound dissipates over distance.

My father grew up on a farm where BWI airport is and one day, during a huge storm, ball lightning came in their house, a bright ball of energy that came through the wall before fading out. His nutty mother thought Revelations were at hand and probably never recovered from that judging from my experiences with her.

I've had strange things happen to me like the lights come on briefly in a room during an electric storm. Lightning didn't hit the house because the lines weren't fried but *something* made it happen. Also once I was walking down the street when the air seemed oddly unsettled and there was a bright flash all around me. I didn't get hit by lightning and there was no thunder but something weird happened.

She's been smoking some righteous ganja when she thinks that Joe Biden might emerge from his basement and become a leader. Al Campanis got fired from his job with the Los Angeles Dodger organization when he said that blacks "might not have the essentials" to become baseball managers. I have news for Peggy---Joe Biden never had the essentials to become a leader--handsy, hair sniffer yes---but leader never. And now he's suffering from early dementia.

I was shocked at the play the NYT article on Russian "bounties" on Americans in Afghanistan has received. Talk about giving cmofort to our enemies!

There have been 6 Americans who have died in Afghanistan since January 1. I believe all were killed in action. Our forces left in Afgnanistan are SF and a few paratroopers and support/air.

These articles are, in my opinion, treason.

Some far away ration outlet ill broadcast this over the Afghan airwaves and the farm boys will all come out with their AK's looking to kill an American.
