Managing daily distractions

Today I spent about two hours chasing down facts to refute an erroneous story involving one of our schools that was aired by a talk radio station last spring. It popped back up today as yet another talk radio station, fed by blogs, recycled the story as part of its coverage of the latest “Obama song” flap, this time at a New Jersey elementary school. All of which left me wondering, what if we could capture all this outrage and focus that energy on tutoring kids in reading, mentoring teens or feeding the hungry? We might actually solve some important issues and do some good rather than spending limited time and resources managing non-issues and non-news events.
