My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


More Silliness

The Rocky Mountain News runs a column by Swanee Hunt every Saturday. This week she tries to make the point that were we to try to encourage the poor to stay in school via a payment program like some of our neighbors to the south employ, we could create a massive disincentive for terrorism.

First of all, I hesitate to take any example involving education from the Central and South Americas. Secondly, lack of education isn't the problem with Islamists--its their Madrasa-driven education that absolutely is the problem.

Just more naivete from a former diplomat.
