Memphis took down two Confederate statues. State lawmakers are punishing the city for it - CNN https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/18/us/memphis-statues-retaliation-trnd/index.html

Can we crowdsource the 250,000 memphis lost. No city should be punished for removing a statue of the KKK founder.

Literally the @tnhousegop is punishing the city for not memorializing the KKK.

Think on that

Yet we can't. I use the term digital literacies because people need to recognize the web ad they we read and write and not as a tech issue.

Plus using the word fluency makes little sense when it is considered a subset literacy skill. Reading with speed, accuracy, and emotion is the definition most are used to using.

Equating fluency with transfer doesn't work either.

Great quote from @t "but it's not meta-data, it's actual data" Applies to so much more in life than side files versus mark up.

Make no mistake China's sorghum Tarrif is a direct shot at Mitch McConnell.

He has always championed hemp production but I wonder if sense of urgency is due to hit agriculture sector is taking.

I need to remember, kick myself actually, make changes to website on GitHub and then push to websites....STOP making quick changes in the cpanel editor Greg.....It's the reason your repos fall so out of sync with your live sites.

I am currently running mine through @withknown http://quickthoughts.jgregorymcverry.com but I have also tested and run it through my Wordpress site.

I haven't set it up or tested it on micro.blog. Created an account but haven't decided if I am going to use it or stick with what I have.

Not building a web app for that but scoping out one for my teaching workflow.
