On Unions:

Normally I don’t vent twice in one day. I don’t even particularly like Joe Klein either. Oh, well. Any given Monday.

Klein has a piece in today’s Time Magazine on the Detroit Federation of Teachers successful campaign to keep a millionaire citizen from doing something good for the public school system. Why, pray tell, would teachers look a $200 million gift horse in the mouth?

The answer, gentle reader, is they didn’t. Well, most of them didn’t. The union did. They have their reasons, none, I repeat, none of which are valid. Looks to me like the leadership of the DFT is far less interested in the education of the children than they are their own power base.

Keeping children in failing, crumbling, and otherwise squalid educational institutions is a crime.

Here endeth the lesson.
