I’m teaching a new class this semester . . . it’s on cultural diversity in psychotherapy practice.  I’m really excited about it, but as such, 1) my blogging might be a little light for a while as I prepare, 2) my links about race and ethnicity might amp up a bit, and 3) I will probably be very busy cleaning out the junk drawer, organizing my closet into ROY G. BIV order, and all of the other random, useless things I find to occupy my time when I have a syllabus due.  In addition to things like, oh, MOVING MY FAMILY OF SIX BACK INTO OUR CONSTRUCTION SITE  HOME.
This may be the most random and unrelated list of links I’ve ever created.  If you read them all, you are sure to be offended by at least one of them. 
You’re welcome for that.  Come on back and tell me what you thought.

Kristen Chase started this challenge several weeks ago and I wish I’d discovered it sooner.  It is good stuff – this links to the whole series so far.  Some of my favorites/things I need to work on: letting the other parent parent, playing with what your child chooses, and finding one-on-one time with each child.
This one is about God.  And immigration reform.

The One Parenting Habit that Changes Everything

See there?  A nice, encouraging post about reading the bible with your children. (No really!  It is!! And it is a good one.)

And last but not least, Colbert says more with satire than the Huffington Post can say with 20-odd editorials on the topic:
