There is no such thing as critical race theory…

…and if there is, it's a good thing. The Fresno Bee this weekend published a "Valley Voices" op-ed from college administrator Noha Elbaz who attempts to make the case that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is nothing more than a boogeyman designed to gin up fear, distrust and anger. What is [CRT]? Not many can really tell […]

The Congress as an Appendix

Not the section at the back of a book, but rather the organ in the human body that once may have had a function—but does no longer does. Nearly a year ago (I've been busy with other things), I wrote a long essay decrying the breakdown of our constitutional system. Presidents Obama, Trump and Biden […]

Curriculum: Social Media is a Cesspool

At the end of the 2020-21 school year, Paso Robles High School's last day of classes consisted of two separate cohorts of students coming to classes for 15 minutes. It's unclear what exactly was supposed to be accomplished in these super-short classes, it was anticipated that attendance would be low, and the teachers I was […]

Public education, COVID, and the future

It's been several weeks since the 20-21 school year ended here in Paso Robles, Calif. My wife and I are moving to the Central Valley so she can return to teaching at her alma mater—a public school that pays better than any public school district on California's Central Coast, and in an area with a […]

Feelings > Science

I've been working on a rather long post for several weeks, as I've had time, on my experience as a semi-regular classroom teacher during the final months of the 2020-21 school year. The completion of that post has been hampered by the sale of our home and preparations to move. But this bit of news […]

Public Education in the Time of COVID

We're approaching the end of our first year living with the COVID-19 virus here in the United States. The report card for most of our elected officials and institutions is dismal—public education is among the worst. I see a lot of this close-up. My wife is a high school English teacher; my sister, a high […]

Cancel Culture and the Teaching Profession

Unlike some on the right, I'm not a big fan of cancel culture regardless of its origin. There's this story out of Arkansas about a high school history teacher who got fired over an email he sent to state lawmakers over a bill they were considering prohibiting use of the fraudulent 1619 Project curriculum and […]

Keeping kids safe on campus

Despite what some may believe, I really do care about keeping kids safe on campus. In the wake of the horrific massacre last week at Parkland, Fla.'s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead, I got the predictable query from KVEC 920 AM radio host Dave Congalton to come on his show and […]

Sexual assault is a serious crime

Sexual assault is a serious crime, and it should be treated as such. Since 2011, when the Obama administration's Education Department released its infamous "Dear Colleague" letter, many colleges and universities have taken it upon themselves to create a legal system that bears more in common with star chambers than with the legal regime under the […]

Shut up, they said

Two events this past week illustrate exactly how illiberal and totalitarian the political left in this country has become in the months since it became clear they hold exactly zero levers of power in Washington, D.C., with the election of President Donald Trump. They don't want to hear what the right has to say, they […]

Buttigieg is going with *we waited until it was safely over the ocean*, which demands that the question be asked "Why didn't you do this over the Bering Sea? Why did you let it cross America?"

If @jaketapper were a journalist, he'd ask.

He didn't.

Tapper is not a journalist.

Here's where I'm at with this.

Even if it was a weather balloon, even if it was an accident, even if Trump did it...what's the response to this question?

It *can't* be "to avoid provoking China" because Biden shot it down anyways.

Biden can't have it both ways. https://twitter.com/jasoninthehouse/status/1622038491218726913

Jason Chaffetz @jasoninthehouse

Mr. President, what is the answer to this question?

I continue to be annoyed by online media companies skimping on the copy editors.

If you disagree, we may feud over the issue.
