I thought I was done and then realized I had not yet gone through my e-mail. I found this item. On the one hand I am no longer amazed at abysmal ignorance. On the other, I am sad that I am no longer amazed at abysmal ignorance. I seem to remember that our last President pushed through, with great fanfare especially from his Republican cronies, the 'No Child Left Behind' reforms(?). From the looks of this we indeed have left no child behind. We have left all of them behind (unless they are able to learn on their own.)
I found that article by way of Mark Morford's latest blog. Again, Morford points out the not-so-subtle absurdities which surround us in this 21st century.
