Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

OK, not me, but my nine year old son was one of two grand prize winners for the Shaker Heights Library Fantastical Creatures Essay Contest.  He is going into 5th Grade, and the contest was supposed to be for those going into 6th through 12th, but they said it was fine for him to give it a try.  He wrote a very cool essay about an imaginary fantastical creature (he calls it the Nyred (pronounced Near-Red).  His prize was a brand new copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  Pretty cool, and a real keepsake.

I am, of course, bursting with pride, not just for his winning, but for his deciding to enter and having the courage to send in his entry after writing it even with all those "big kids" doing it as well.

I'm afraid I don't even know what language it is, but on this page:


way down you see the red WYSIWYG?  That is a link to our Web Editors page.



I don't even recognize the date.  Where is the current year 1384, does anybody know?
