From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

Goofus and Gallant History and Ethnography—Resource Center

Welcome to the Resource Center for the Round and Square series "Goofus and Gallant Teach History and Ethnography." As early as 1936, and almost every week since 1948, Goofus and Gallant have shown "how to act" in American society. I am not sure that the lessons conveyed are always those that Highlights Magazine for Children sought to convey. Moreover, the historically changing boys say a great deal about history (and change). That, of course, has everything to do with ethnography.

Is Goofus really that "out there" in a society that rewards all sort of male jerks?
