Doodles In Our Schools!

Superintendent Julie Hackett said she could not discuss an individual student and did not address the drawing specifically or the teacher's reaction to it, but did say the school has safety protocols in place that were followed

"Safety protocols"? that's perfect. Well, good thing: I'm sure there was a clear and present danger of this child erecting giant crosses everywhere and hoisting his teachers and peers on them.

Sorry, I Don't Buy It is ostensibly written by one fellow: Andrew Sullivan. Indeed, one of the appeals of the site is that is is the (ostensible) opinion of one person. If someone else authors a post on the site, then his or her name needs to be on the post to differentiate the post from those actually written by Sullivan. Honestly, I'm very disappointed.

It Is Possible That I am the King of Sweden

I commented over here in what I suppose is a sort-of defense of Bill Hobbs. I should clarify that I have no idea what happened and that my main issue is with everyone acting like agreeing to a plea bargain (or something similar like this) necessarily means anything more than your taking the least worst of a bunch of bad options. The "King of Sweden" business was just based upon my personal interactions with Bill and his family. I figure that since others were allowing their personal feelings color their opinions of this situation, that I would as well. That's really all that was about. Probably won;t do much to counter accusations of being an apologist for spouse abusers, but there it is just the same.

Just Asking...

...not to be a pain in the butt but because at this point I honestly don't know:

Somebody define "victory in Afghanistan" for me.

UPDATE: Re-reading this, I suppose it could be construed as some kind of knock at the president. It's not meant to be. While President Obama certainly should have an answer to this, so too should those who criticize him for his Afghanistan policy. It's basically a question for anyone.
