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


Something About Glass Houses And Stones . . .

Wal-Mart announced Monday that it will donate $1 million to the Hurricane Relief efforts.

Remember the last time Wal-Mart was in the news? That's right--when the National Education [read: teacher's] Association announced a boycott of Wal-Mart because of its anti-union policies.

Tell me--what grand efforts has the NEA made to offer assistance and relief to the victims of Katrina? According to the Louisiana Department of Education, some 135,000 students are now without schools to go to for the foreseeable future; what has the NEA done to help?

Well, except, of course, make absolutely certain that the teachers are well protected.

Don't get me wrong: I think teachers deserve as much protection as anybody. It's just that it seems staggeringly hypocritical to chastize an organization that is SO generous for its positions on COMPLETELY NON-EDUCATION RELATED ISSUES while not bothering to jump into the fray on an issue that would clearly be within its purview.
