Two Completely Unrelated Videos

I'm probably a little mental right now from grading papers.  But what better time to blog?

One video features Jan Brewer, our state governor.  She's been in a tiff with Obama over state's rights in terms of immigration policy.  He dismantled her dear, dear SB1070, and she still hasn't forgiven him, and yet here's what she had to say at the RNC:

The other video is a bit longer, but apparently it is the most popular TED Talks video, and it features Sir Ken Robinson speaking about the importance of teaching and nurturing creativity in our schools.  He holds it on par with literacy.  Great talk.  I love what he says about children being willing to take a chance on an idea, even when they don't know or are wrong. "If you're not prepared to be wrong, you'll never come up with anything original." Please watch:
