A flash mob for Christmas

I only recently heard of the “flash mob” phenomenon (on the show “Modern Family”).

Here is a very compelling video of a flash mob performing “Hallelujah” at, of all places, a shopping mall.

Thanks to Father Thomas Berg for pointing it out.

And now, a Christmas-time flash mob:

Gary Stern

Gary Stern covered education in the Lower Hudson Valley for several years during the early 1990s. Now's he back on the beat. He believes that schools are one of the main reasons that people live around here and that educational issues -- from curriculum to financing -- are among the most challenging things that journalists can write about. He continues to be amazed by the complexity of educational jargon. Gary got his B.A. at SUNY Buffalo and his M.A. from the University of Missouri Journalism School (where his master's thesis was about the best ways to cover education). He lives in White Plains with his wife and two sons, who attend public schools.
