    I don’t know if this one really has a home education angle or not.

    COLUMBUS, Ga. – A couple was arrested for keeping their four adopted children in a house filled with vomit and feces and for not enrolling them in school.

    …Police were called to the home to assist Department of Family and Children Services officials who were executing a court order to take custody of the children because they were not enrolled in school. The home was not licensed for home-schooling the children, Columbus Police Sgt. Rick McMahan said.

    That licensing thing is incorrect; GA doesn’t require a license to homeschool. It probably means that they hadn’t filed the intent forms.

    I find it weird that the house was “filled with vomit and feces” yet the children “appeared clean and well fed”.

    Is anybody else having trouble with the RSS feed here? Mine has not updated with new posts in several days in Bloglines. I’ve unsubscribed and resubscribed – hasn’t made a difference.

    I may have screwed up the feed somehow. I’ll try to figure it out. I just pinged pingoat.

    I’ve been getting notification of new posts in Safari with no interruption.

    Yeah, this site is running only a few seconds delay. I think it must be a Bloglines problem. I did fix the URL that displays on the page. If you click it now you’ll get the actual feed instead of an error message.

    Which reminds me– I like Bloglines because the subscription list stays on their server. It’s a major advantage when switching computers. But the service and quality seems a bit dated. Does anyone know of a more modern aggregator that allows for easy switching between computers?

    Bothe Google and Yahoo have RSS readers now – I haven’t tried either though so I don’t know if they are any good.

    I use Yahoo. It works about as well as Yahoo Groups (ie, most of the time it works just fine, but occasionally, it hiccups). I do think it takes more than a couple of seconds to up date, even on the fastest days.

    The last couple days of updates here just showed up in Bloglines. It’s a Bloglines issue – not anything you are doing here Daryl.
