        \_ The NRA has a lot to answer for.

        Obama administration screws DC school kids. (in his defense, it is
        not clear that he really knows what the Sec. of Edu is doing, that
        he had anything to do with holding up study till after the vote, etc.

        go to China" on our broken EDU system, is way in vain.

        \_ Is this $800B bill hundreds upon hundreds of pages long? It's not
           coming off the heels of a crisis in national defense; rather, it's
           attempting to fix a spiraling economy. Plus it seems that the
