Malinda Winkle's Response to the State of the Union Address

I promised myself I wouldn't watch the State of the Union. It really bothers me to listen to all that rhetoric. But, I did listen to most of it before I couldn't stand it anymore....

Here is a fun one: Find in this article I wrote for links to numerous physic videos for kids (but they are really fun for us adults to watch too). These videos suit children from 3 months old through high school.
