Somewhere Harold Ross is grinning from ear to ear

I haven't read anything this good in months, maybe years. Ditch this blog, turn off the computer, and go find the nearest physical copy of the January 15 New Yorker containing Katherine Boo's meticulously observed account of a high-expectations school superintendent and low-expectations high school kids in Denver. (Not online as of Friday afternoon.)

It doesn't excerpt well, so I'll just say that if you leave the magazine in the bathroom you'll find yourself making excuses to go there.
