And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why I teach at a private school. At some point between now and the spring, I think I will have to teach about the contributions of Edward Kennedy just ot make a point. (And I don’t care about him one way or another. I just don’t want some ignorant Texas conservative dictating my child’s future education.)
Serious bitterness. I am glad this guy is blogging and not axe-murdering. (Okay, so he does make some very good points, but bravo to Google for figuring out how to make money on the work of others. After all, isn’t that the American way?)
Mr. President, you’re losing us… Don’t worry, I still love you. Like a parent that promised that they’re going to take you to Disney World but then apologizes and says s/he can’t because s/he’s low on funds and can’t get the time off work.
“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men Gang aft a-gley, An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain For promis’d joy." ~Rabbie Burns”—That being said, I have finished my lesson plans until the holiday break.
I am so angry about this. I can’t reconcile myself to the fact that I not only live in the same country as people who are so narrow-minded, but that I also have to share oxygen with them. Are we truly headed for a civil war? The informed and empathetic versus the ignorant and hateful?
