Will you be teaching about 9/11?


With school starting up again, and it being close to the 11th anniversary of 9/11, I'm reminding everyone about the book, When the Lights Go Out. It's written for readers 8 and up. This fiction adventure - mystery helps to remind all of us of the people we lost on 9/11, but it's about much, much more.

You may want to have your students do a book report about When the Lights Go Out, or to write a paper about 9/11. You'll find much more information at this link, including an interview with a firefighter who was trapped in the rubble and survived.

May I encourage you to use When the Lights Go Out this year and in the future so we never forget what happened on 9/11.

Thank you,

My friend Jerry & BMX Racing at Olympics

That's my friend, Jerry Landrum, on the left, in London at the Olympics. Jerry and I went to high school and college together. He's an excellent photographer, used to ride BMX, and maintains a site about BMX bike racing at We've been keeping in touch these past few days during the events.

He's standing next to a security / body guard at the track. The BMX men's final will be on NBC tonight sometime between 8:00 and midnight.
