The Chicago Teachers Union is moving closer to striking in the fall. Internal reports are claiming that they've easily surpassed the 75% member agreement threshold necessary for a strike.

First time since 1987, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

March of the Penguins, or hockey. Not "sexual depravity". At least not until now. Peep the article, Sex Habits of the Adelie Penguin, over at HuffPost for a laugh.

My favorite line: "There seems to be no crime too low for these penguins." Classic material.
