                                       NOTE:  Until now, this site served two purposes.  It was my vanity site, where I posted

                            essays on various topics, motivated by whatever asinine human or inhuman conduct irritated

                          me most the day of writing.  It still serves that purpose.

                                       The other purpose was to share articles and monographs on teaching the dyslexic reader,

                            and on the teaching of elementary mathematics. Those pieces come from a 30 year career

                            in mathematics education, and, for the past 10 years, doing remedial reading work with dyslexics

                                      That work, with dyslexics, has resulted in the ExWyZee Remedial Reading Computer Program,

                            a program for use by parents of reading-impaired students.  The education offerings have been

                            moved to my new site:


                            So, for articles and monographs on remedial reading and elementary mathematics that were on

                            this vanity site, please log off and go to my other website: 


                                    MY ESSAYS     [Essay Page]

                                    Pieces that derive from a fantasy of being mentioned with the likes of such

                                    philosophers as Kirk E. Guard and that Chinese one, Nee Chee. 

                                    But a caution:  Some of them are intended for the mature among us.


                                    TODAY'S RANT    [Today's Rant]

                                    It's about Ending Social Promotion (ESP).  That  silly chant was recently recited by Detroit Public

                                    Schools' appointed administrator, and reported with gusto in the Detroit Free Press.  Check in later.
