Three Interesting Things

1. So, a Florida school removed Cory Doctorow's book from the summer reading program (after, I might mention, the librarian and English teacher had planned several fall programs around it), and well, Doctorow sent 200 copies, plus I hear there's a free download.
2. So, you could buy a prom dress at a store. (I certainly did.)  Or, you could buy a plain dress and paint it to look like a Van Gogh painting perhaps.
3. One teen set up an anonymous twitter account to send compliments to fellow school goers. She allowed her identity to be revealed at graduation, and she has apparently handed the account over to someone who will continue it next year.
