  • Next message: Stewart: "Pilkey art book"

            In 1993, I was at Cranbrook and got a chance to go to Ann Arbor for
    the art fair. Wow was it huge, it went on and on forever. Lots of ideas
    there to "steal", creative thievery of course. Which reminds me of my major
    objection of paying teachers "merit pay" according to the quality of our
    teaching. What will that do for exchanging ideas, helping other
    improve, sharing curriculum, etc. We grow by helping each other, not by
    competing against each other.
                    Just my thoughts, or maybe I borrowed them, Woody in KC
