As this is written, the swine flu epidemic has fallen to the back pages of the news, but I can tell you that it remains a problem for public schools- attendance is still off what it was last year to an incredible degree.

No comic today, but I wanted to point out something I found online today. Hey You Guys! is a charity movie screening and silent auction benefitting DonorsChoose.org and they’re having an auction on Monday. There are some truly amazing pieces of 1980’s movie inspired artwork, including this one from Superman II that made me geek and laugh when I saw it.
Now seems as good a time as any to mention my own DonorsChoose profile; at this festive season of the year, it is more than usually desirable that we make some slight provision for the poor… and in many respects, that includes our nation’s public schools. I have three project currently awaiting funding: one to benefit my classroom’s small lending library, another that looks to expand that library’s insanely popular graphic novel selections, and a proposal for a digital camera to re-start our school’s lapsed student newspaper. A great way to support the comic is to donate to my classroom!
(I may mention this a couple of times in the month of December.)
