DIFFERENT POV ON THOSE LETTERS
Lorie, at Polipundits:
I have posted a somewhat different take on the story of the sixth grade class that sent letters to the soldier, with many of the letters including anti-war statements. My concern, even greater than that of the children possibly being indoctrinated, is that they have not even been taught the basics about the role of the military. If they had been, they never would have included those statements in letters to a soldier, but would have written a separate letter to the President or Secretary of Defense or to their local Congressman.
As I said, our tax dollars at work. And our very own Gayle couldn't have said it better:
I do not believe this teacher's tardy protests of innocence. He figured he was getting away with some sly "dissing" of our military via a bunch of kids and then he got nailed. He ought to be fired and tried for what should be a crime - vicious stupidity!
