  1. Thanks! I have a lot of Korean students and shouldn’t be so ignorant about the Korean war. Looking forward to checking out the websites.

  2. Hi Larry,

    I think a lot of your readers are teachers or perhaps in some area of education and so I’m writing to suggest http://www.school-counselor.org as a resource link on your blog. This website provides career and licensure information for those who are interested in moving into the school counseling profession.

    Hope this is helpful,

    Seth Sanford
