You’ll all be happy to know that this conversation took place in my classroom yesterday:
Me: …and that’s how you do a Geometry proof. Any questions?

Student How does a tampon work? I can’t figure it out!
On top of that, I was at school all night for parent-teacher conferences. So I’m a little exhausted.
I did have some exciting news to share about the current SSA fundraiser and I posted that below.
For the rest of today, though, I’m turning the blog over to my friend, Jesse Galef, who will offer a few postings of his own.
We are almost there.
You see the thermometer in the side bar. We’ve gotten contributions, large and small, from so many people and we’re unbelievably close to reaching the $50,000 mark set by Todd Stiefel when he made his matching offer.
We’re less than $8,000 away from our goal.
You can help us cross the mark.
Todd told us the deadline was December 21st. We felt there was a lot of support for us out there, but to raise that much money in only 2.5 months was an admittedly daunting task.
Is it possible to raise it all within a single month…?
I don’t know what I’d do.
It may involve more dancing.
Please help us get there and make the campus environment a safer haven for student activism, expressions of freethought, and intelligent conversations about religion.
