Good morning to you

I'm going to start by saying nothing, except that you should read this article: http://insidecatholic.com/Joomla/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2339&Itemid=48. It's people like these, the Frederic Bastiat types, that make sense of politics for me. God bless the French for at least giving us Bastiat, Edith Piaf, and fantastic cheese.

Clever article:) I'm inclined to agree in many lights. Indeed, after a year of working in a public middle school I have often thought that it might be nice for everyone if the 8th grade were eliminated entirely (except for those who truly desire an education) and the students be placed in some sort of occupation for a year or so. Maybe that's not the point, but kids are so strange at that age that they would do better to learn a hearty work ethic and the value and purpose of education(let them see what they could be doing in 10 years if they stay in school or drop out). :) Oh well, maybe in another time and place ;)
