        \_ De Oakland farm bo'd's attempt t'provide betta' confo'mity
         t'de standardized English by usin' ESL techniques and fundin'
           may gots' some serious political fallout.  In particular if
           Ebonics be recognized as sepuh'te language, it provides an
           objective criterion fo' racists t'exclude brother s at hirin'
           time, dig dis: "we require all our employees t'speak English" -mel

              English - choice
              \_ Only in de American dialects.  Most English, Indian,
           and Australian dialects use da damn plural fo' collecto's
           (e.  What it is, Mama!g. "de audience are") -mel
           \_ De  JIBE  honky code be de closest wahtahmellun t'a serious study
              uh Black English on dis system.  'S coo', bro.  You's should look into its
              code and development befo'e ya' condemn it. -mel
           \_ git some fuckin' clue.  What it is, Mama!  De " JIBE"  honky code be not provided
              as an educashunal tool.  idiot.

          aint in some posishun t'comment on teachin' ebonics.  Dat's

12/20   One word: Ebonics
        \_ The Oakland school board's attempt to provide better conformity
           to the standardized English by using ESL techniques and funding
           may have some serious political fallout.  In particular if
           Ebonics is recognized as seperate language, it provides an
           objective criterion for racists to exclude blacks at hiring
           time: "we require all our employees to speak English" -mel
        \_ Hey--until you hypocrites remove the jive program from this
           machine, none of you are in any position to comment on what
           K-12 teachers are trying to do with Black English. --elizp
           \_ I think 'none of you' is singular in standard written
              English - choice
              \_ Only in the American dialects.  Most English, Indian,
           and Australian dialects use the plural for collectors
           (e.g. "the audience are") -mel
           \_ The jive program is the closest thing to a serious study
              of Black English on this system.  You should look into its
              code and development before you condemn it. -mel
           \_ get a fucking clue.  The "jive" program is not provided
              as an educational tool.  idiot.
           \_ Aye, I don't think anyone here suggested using Jive to
              proofread their paper for them.
              \_ I think elizp suggested that because we have Jive, we
          are not in a position to comment on teaching ebonics.  That's
          just absurd.
           \_ Censorship man. It's groovy.
        \_ Ebonics math: 1 gat + 2 gats done be 3 gats done be pappappap
           shootin' da man wid.
           \_ Brutha' gots 3 vials o' crack. Brutha sells the crack for 20
              bucks/vial. How many dead presidents do he gots after he sells
              all of his crack?
        \_ Word, muthafukah!

12/20   I am considering having the adam glass memorial beer bash
        at my soon to be vacated house, but since i don't drink
        i'd rather play RED ALERT.  are there other people
        out there with Red Alert CD ROM's and a pc with ethernet
        card who'd be willing to haul their computer over for
        the alleged beer bash? - danh

12/20   I am very sorrowed to report that Dr. Carl Sagan has died at age 64.
        Please join me in a moment of silence. . . . . . . . . .   He will
        be deeply missed by humans and aliens alike.  -- cmlee, *sob* *sob*
        \_ butt-head astronomer
        \_ I thought he'd live for billions and billions of years.
        \_ I am saddened, as I looked up to him since I was 9.
              According to CNN and Reuters, he was 62. - mas
              \_ I believe cmlee is referring to his age realative to
           earth years.  You see, he spent so much time travelling
            at/near the speed of light...  :)
            \_ What i wana know is who gets that cool cosmos space
        ship with the groovy crystals!!!

           Information Supercliche! Just ask cdaveb, debbie & friends. -tpc
           \_ there is no intermezzo in fremont.  therefore it sucks.
           \_ Freakmont's hilight is its one Fry's Electronics. There's
              nothing else there. No clubs. No entertainment. No women.
           \_ Freakmont cops aren't bike friendly either.
         \_So, uh, what are cdaveb and debbie?
          \_ uh, 'attached' ?
