Even if you aren’t an Aggie, the latest zinger by Matthew Maddox is brilliant.
Also: For the first time in many months, 100% of my website is working (as far as I know.) Enjoy it while it lasts and be sure to let me know if you find any bugs/missing pages/errors.
Today’s blog is a reply to the following question I saw on a local forum: Who is the worst dictator of all time?
How can you answer this kind of question without first determining what makes someone evil in the first place?
And how can you possibly make such a comparison without some standard by which to judge the moral worth of a person?
So, to determine just how evil a man is, you must first find out what standard of morality one should be judged by in the first place.
Here is what I think:
LAWRENCE, Massachusetts (AP) — This city’s superintendent of schools, who recently put two dozen teachers on unpaid leave for failing a basic English proficiency test, has himself flunked a required literacy test three times.
The story concludes:
Laboy, who receives a 3 percent pay hike this month that will raise his salary to $156,560, recently put 24 teachers on unpaid administrative leave because they failed a basic English test
This pretty much speaks for itself. I would only add that the same unions that oppose vouchers and bash home schooling ensure that the worthless bureaucrats who run our schools are paid so much.
