I thought of our nation’s social studies teachers when I saw this excellent video on the civic responsibility we have to teach social studies as the study of power. It’s an interesting take on middle and high school education, at the very least.
Religious people who neglect God’s summons to care for the poor are not the people of God at all. God rejects their worship. Strong words from the Bible?!

My latest binge watching obsession has been Mad Man. I’ve heard about for years, but I had no interest in it as a live broadcast. Besides, I had missed the first 400 episodes. But on Netflix, I could start with season 1, and I did.
I called the San Francisco ecco store to order a pair. They didn’t have both in stock and gave me their customer service number, from which I was told I could order the shoe strings. I called them and explained my objective. Regrettably, they don’t sell them. But the lady volunteered to mail me out replacement shoe strings free of charge!
I’m going through the 3,500 photos I shot in New Zealand, and this is one of my favorites so far. It’s actually 2 photos stitched together. The views were astoundingly expansive.

The snow from Mount Tasman creates the Fox Glacier. Seeing the snow from above cracking and creating thousands of enormous crevasses was a first for me.
This was first class service. This level of personal attention was completely over the top! Not only did Tesla read my satisfaction survey, the company went out of its way to make sure I was more than satisfied with my service experience. I’m just very, very impressed! Tesla totally rocks! Gotta love this company! Totally love this car!
We took our first road trip in Nick—driving to Martinez for a bit of business1. We then decided to head up to Vacaville for lunch. We wanted to visit the Vacaville supercharger station. We really didn’t need to charge, but the whole idea was to try it out. This was our first supercharger experience. It’s free. It’s blazing fast. […]
Today I unexpectedly heard back from Tesla, thanking me for taking the time to provide them with information about my Tesla service experience, addressing some of my specific concerns, and also thanking me for my thoughts and ideas about how Tesla can improve their customer service experience generally.
