news & opinion with no titillating non-news from the major non-news channels.


I am: progressive, not a wild-eyed Progressive; liberal, but shun liberals and Liberals; conservative, but some Conservatives worry me; absolutely NOT a libertarian. I am: an idealist, but no utopian; a pragmatist, but no Machiavellian. I am a realist who dreams.


I welcome all opinions.

A Case for Choice in Public Education:
   NYT says yes to School Vouchers

The New York Times is shining the high beams on Gifford Miller, a New York City mayoral candidate, as this father of a 4 year old ponders whether to send his son to public or private school. The NYT lambasts the father for even thinking about shunning his local school district, PS 158, which is "one of the best schools in one of the top districts in the city".

Read between the newsprint, people.

The NYT is showing that it really is a bastion of conservative thought. If "one of the best schools" is not even able to compete against available private schooling, then is it not logical to assume that the NYT is saying there is something rotten with even the "best (public) schools"?
