Since 2006, the third Thursday in November has been set aside in Minneapolis Public Schools as Native American Family Involvement Day (NAFID). This year, NAFID will be held on Thursday, November 17. This day is designated to recognize the importance of American Indian families being involved in their child's education, and to help to build trust between students, families and schools. MPS encourages all schools to celebrate NAFID to honor the efforts of American Indian students and families, and to celebrate the unique contributions of Native Americans to education and to our school district.
I am pleased to announce that I will again host seven Soup with the Supe events in different areas of the school district to connect with the community by serving soup and engaging in a town hall discussion. Soup with the Supe allows me to hear directly from our stakeholders in a welcoming, interactive environment. Student entertainment, food, childcare and interpreters will be available at each event.

he sleeping Tigress has awakened. I mean me. I found out in a definitive way that there's more to life than having fun, or at least desperately trying to. It took a bonk on my head, literally, to come to this amazing revelation. So I am taking my own sage advice: "I practice moderation…in moderation." Well, we all gotta have some fun, right? And it's not like I'm the only person who made a mistake which was totally out of character. While I was paging through the Bible I came across the quote: 'Judge not, lest ye be judged." Wise words.
Like most people I've been following the Republican race for presidential nominee whether I want to or not, but I don't mind cuz it's providing me with many moments of hilarity. Michelle Bachman has become increasingly screechy and frantic and is now The Queen of De-Nial; even the Tea Party wants her to wrap it up and go home. How embarrassing! Hee hee! Now the Republicans are pitting Herman Cain (he's black, anyone notice that? Interesting, ennit?) who is a former pizza maker against the Democratic incumbent, President Barack Obama who graduated from Harvard Law School. Really?! I snicker.

Yeah, the war in Iraq is going to be over in a couple of months President Obama promises. Did we win? Did we lose? Or did we just lose interest in a war that just kept ambling on and on, one that cost billions of dollars and lives.
Was it worth it? Did we ever find those pesky weapons of mass destruction? How many Americans died in that long lasting war? I know who suffered besides the Iraqi, it was the combat veterans that came home greatly affected by their experiences.
According to the news over 4,000 Americans died, and over 150,000 Iraqi citizens. The cost of the war was estimated at 400 billion dollars.
But alas, the war is not over. Now I hear America is sending troops into Africa, four different countries. And what about Afghanistan, aren't Americans still getting wounded and dying there? I forget why we were even there in the first place.
Do we always have to be at war somewhere?
