For all the kind, supportive words I’ve received about my CNN appearance. It really means a lot, especially after hearing from conservative bloggers about how I sounded "like a middle schooler." Ugh. And then the commenters over here at The Guardian totally missing my tone of deliberate hyperbole. I intend to get back to reporting the next few days, since all this punditry is really raising my blood pressure. I’m currently working on a print feature about schools and the achievement gap. And as always, blogging daily at TAPPED.
As for all the strangers who suggested we go out on a date or who referenced sex in messages to me after I appeared on CNN…um, not so appreciated. It’s hard enough putting oneself out there without fielding comments like that. Don’t be icky.
