[Are you among the cold-hearted sceptics who disbelieve
that people walked the earth with dinosaurs, and not that
long ago? Well, not Stephen Colbert guest Don McLeroy.
He believes. Remarkably, McLeroy and his beliefs are
their own confirmation -- living proof that there are
dinosaurs among us today. That they can be elected to
the Texas Board of Education. That they can determine
what K-12 textbooks say about evolution. The irony! Yes,
dinosaurs determine what our children are taught about
evolution. -- video moderator.]

The Revisionaries: Movie

In Austin, Texas, fifteen people influence what is
taught to the next generation of American children. Once
every decade, the highly politicized Texas State Board
of Education rewrites the teaching and textbook
standards for its nearly 5 million schoolchildren. And
when it comes to textbooks, what happens in Texas
affects the nation as a whole.

Don McLeroy, a dentist, Sunday school teacher, and
avowed young-earth creationist, leads the Religious
Right charge. After briefly serving on his local school
board, McLeroy was elected to the Texas State Board of
Education and later appointed chairman. During his time
on the board, McLeroy has overseen the adoption of new
science and history curriculum standards, drawing
national attention and placing Texas on the front line
of the so-called "culture wars."

In his last term, McLeroy, aided by Cynthia Dunbar, an
attorney from Houston and professor of Law at Jerry
Falwell's Liberty University, finds himself not only
fighting to change what Americans are taught, but also
fighting to retain his seat on the board. Challenged by
Kathy Miller, president of the Texas Freedom Network,
and Ron Wetherington, an anthropology professor from
Southern Methodist University in Texas, McLeroy faces
his toughest term yet.

THE REVISIONARIES follows the rise and fall of some of
the most controversial figures in American education
through some of their most tumultuous intellectual
battles.

Slow Jam the News With Barack Obama

When Jimmy talks to the UNC audience about student
loans, he decides a slow jam with President Obama and
The Roots is appropriate.

Occupy West Side Story - Officer Winski

"Occupy West Side Story" takes aim at NYPD Deputy
Inspector Edward J. WInski, the white-shirted bully of
Occupy Wall Street.

In the wake of Occupy Broadway's success and the failure
of "The Big Bank" musical initiative comes the
screaming-to-go-viral "Occupy West Side Story." Though
perhaps less ambitious than its predecessors, this
hilarious clip takes aim at NYPD Deputy Inspector Edward
J. Winski (who replaced the infamous Tony Baloney) by
overdubbing a classic scene from the 1961 film with new
lyrics. The result is an entertaining and powerful
expression of why occupiers are in the streets, how the
economy collapsed, and the sad ironies surrounding the
police brutality that the movement has suffered (and, it
could be said, benefitted from as well). As one stanza
states, "Gee, Officer Winski, please put down your
mace/Your checks are paid by citizens you punch in the
face/Your pension’s been stolen, and nobody cares/Deep
down inside we know you’re scared."

Lyrics are here:

Without Linux, the World We Know Would Be Impossible

While Linux is running our phones, friend requests,
tweets, financial trades, ATMs and more, most of us
don't know how it's actually built. This short video
takes you inside the process by which the largest
collaborative development project in the history of
computing is organized. Based on the annual report "Who
Writes Linux," this is a powerful and inspiring story of
how Linux has become a community-driven phenomenon. More
information about Linux and The Linux Foundation can be
found at http://www.linuxfoundation.org and
http://www.linux.com Published by TheLinuxFoundation.
