Friday Fish Porn – Catfished!

Here’s Kevin Kosar with catfish on the Potomac River from earlier this month. Kosar’s a frequent flier around here, on substance and fish. Some say he’s the Mayor of Fish Porn. Want more? Hundreds of education types with fish are here and here.

Friday Fish Pic: Goldstein Goes Largemouth

Mike Goldstein is an educational polymath and one of the original guestbloggers here and a returner many times since – where he goes wild. But I think fish pics is a first. He took some family time in New England and this picture of a largemouth bass is a pandemic-era trifecta: time outside, smiling kid, […]

Friday Fish Pics!

Something you can do socially distant – and that lots of people like to do socially distant even when it’s not the norm? Fishing. The husband and daughter of Commodore Roza, who has some smart analysis of possible financial impacts from this crisis, got out for a day last week in Washington. And here’s Kevin […]

Friday Fish Pics – Expert Edition

Talk about using your hot stove time well. This is Kevin Kosar’s daughter. And she’s tying a wooly bugger. Herself. So while it’s not a picture of her with a fish, she’s been featured here before with fish, along with her dad, and a kid tying a fly would be more than good enough anyway […]

Friday Fish Pics – Apple & Tree Edition

Here’s Kevin Kosar’s son following in dad’s footsteps. Dad is a regular around here, older sister has turned up, and it turns out his son has a nose for catfish, too. This was taken in Washington, D.C. right by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Pictures of kids with fish are hands down the […]

Friday Fish Porn: The Mayor With A Gar

We’ve had a lot of fish here over the years, different kinds of trout, salmon, large and smallmouth bass, stripers, shad…but we’ve never had a gar. Until today. Here’s Kevin Kosar, by day an analyst but more importantly the Mayor of Fish Porn again, with a gar he caught last weekend in the shadow of […]

Friday Fish – Fuller’s Back

Last week Kosar came back, but Bellwether’s Ali Fuller won’t let go of the Mayor of Fish Porn crown without a fight. So here’s some farm pond fishing from an end of summer trip the Fuller family took:                 You wan to see more pictures of education types, […]

The Future Of America is Nonwhite, But Are Our Schools Ready? Good Work At Goodwill, Must-Read Leondhart On College Diversity, Charter Snubs In Massachusetts, Pension Problems Everywhere, Billionaires And Advocacy, ESSA Debate, Sorta Fish, More!

It’s Friday, and again no fish pictures! There are some in the queue but it’s been busy around here. One link at the bottom and whiskey/education/congress expert Kevin Kosar goes fishing all the time. If you’re going to come after Chad Aldeman, especially on pension policy, get your facts straight first. Underneath the current craziness, I […]

STEM, SCOTUS Special Ed Dissents, Charter Growth, Discipline With Cami Anderson, Remediation With Checker Finn, Hockey Dog! Plus More!

I talked with Ron Ottinger of STEM Next about STEM, equity, and what he wants to see happen. Non-discriminatory laws are key to a dynamic business climate these days – but so are great public schools and some choice for parents amongst them. The Richmond Times-Dispatch makes that point in relation to the veto of […]
