One of 4,500 Campaign Begins

(Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

I recall a discussion I had as an undergraduate where my professor made the point the people who dropped bombs on cities in World War II would have had a much more difficult time emotionally looking the same people in the eye and killing them with a knife.  Parents for Educational Freedom in North Carolina is determined to make their attackers look their victims in the eye in this 1 of 4,500 campaign.

Shakespeare’s Cassius told Brutus “There is my dagger and here my naked chest. Inside it is a heart more valuable than Pluto’s silver mine and richer than gold. If you’re a Roman, take my heart out. I, who denied you gold, will give you my heart.”

I don’t expect that those who brought this suit will share the reluctance of the noblest Roman of them all.  They fear having someone deny them gold and they seem out for blood.  Hopefully the courts will stay their hand.

    You sound like Sonny Corleone: “What do you think, this is the army where you shoot them a mile away? You gotta get up close like this and badda bing! you blow their brains all over your nice Ivy League suit!”

    Interesting tangent: Michael, like the education blob, is confident that he can get away with murder because the mob’s (blob’s) cronies in the media will spin the narrative:

    In the new media environment, though, “newspaper people on the payroll” isn’t as solid an advantage as it used to be.
