DBD 9.27.10- Taking a Break

I need a break from football. Between the 49ers and Cal, I can't take it right now. And I haven't even talked about the Raiders heartbreaking loss. So for today's DBS let's take a break from football. I began my break from football by reading the newest Malcolm Gladwell piece in "The New Yorker." Gladwell talks about the social media, specifically Twitter and Facebook.

The world, we are told, is in the midst of a revolution. The new tools of social media have reinvented social activism.

Sound hyperbolic, but you have to read the entire piece for this to make sense.

In other news, a Bronx grade-school teacher admits she's an ex-prostitute.

Meet Melissa Petro -- the teacher who gives a new twist to "sex ed."

Only the New York Post would write a sentence like that.

The opinions expressed in a FanPost are, in every way, reflective of the opinions of every California Golden Blogs Marshawnthusiast. Moreover, they are reflective of every employee of SBNation, including Tyler "Blez" Bleszinski.
