Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

the writing is literally on the wall


so… I’ve only just learned that the State of Georgia, Fulton County anyway, is planning to remove cursive writing from the elementary school curriculum.

I have to think about this. but, my understanding of hand-writing is that it’s not only a form and expression of art, it promotes careful consideration, thought and discipline. these are all qualities and traits desperately needed in our children.

obviously hand-writing and its form in cursive can be taught at home, it will continue in my own. but we all know most families will take the easier path through the Disney Channel.

I would write you all personal hand-written notes on my very cool personal stationary. but, we need to start thinking about this and take action now.

so, I am pledging, and today, to write Susan Matzkin at, the principal of my Emma Jo’s Birmingham Falls Elementary School, a personal note asking her to reconsider and be part of the solution, and not the problem. obviously, many of you will have other Principals to contact. do it!

Chip Brackley just asked a great question,

“what’s next, teaching English in our schools?”

peace be to my Brothers and sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
