Almost Famous
I wrote this, in response to a recent New York Times article that, while I think factually accurate, could lead the lay reader to some incorrect conclusions about job training. It's not my byline because evidently there's a bit of a process to get approved as a Huffington Post blogger; maybe if I had a Facebook account and Arianna Herself could "friend" me, that would help.

(The slight irony here? I indirectly know Arianna Huffington, or rather my mom does. When she arranged the "Shadow Conventions" in 2000, my mom was her assistant for the one in Philadelphia. Maybe I should have worked this angle so it would be my ugly mug up there on the site.)

The more important point, largely lost (more understandably than usual, I grant) in the political firestorm over the fate of health care reform, is that the administration did something really terrific last week in announcing the American Graduation Initiative to help an additional five million citizens graduate from community college by 2020. This will strengthen innumerable communities by helping position those Americans to fill the middle-skill jobs, with employers of all sizes in occupations from dental hygienist to plumber to cable installer, that make our economy function.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
