Seems like Humble ISD's more-authors-than-they-could-ever-accommodate problem might solve itself.


why am I reminded of that scene in The Right Stuff when John Glenn refuses to order his wife to talk to Johnson, and the head of NASA says if Glenn doesn't he'll change the flight rotation so Glenn misses his chance to go to space, and all the other six Mercury astronauts immediately surround the director and ask him "Who are you going to get to replace him?" with the implied "Not me." Even though everyone was jonesing to go.

That's what this reminds me of. Humble is about to learn what that word means, I think...

Is it really wrong that my first reaction was to think "Oh, SNAP!"

More seriously, I'm glad to see that Ellen Hopkins is getting this support from her fellow authors. I hope it yields some positive results.


I'm well aware of the fact that everyone in the world reacts badly when they're scared.
Can they now admit that they acted badly, were scared, and step back from that? Reinvite Ms. Hopkins, even if she doesn't show? I mean, what will this say, in big bold billboard words, to the students in this district? We're too scared to talk about seks, and don't want you to even think about it either? Yeah, that works.
