I love hypocrisy
Isn't it great when a YDN column lamenting the fact that high school students underestimate the importance of civil liberties and civic ends: "Luckily, the [federal] Department of Education has already put into place an initiative to 'provide high quality civic education curricula to elementary and secondary school students' through its 'We the People: Citizen and the Constitution' program. I only hope that this program will get the funding it deserves, and that a future attitudes study will produce more favorable results."

She's upset that people don't understand the value of freedom, and she advocates ceding further control of local schools to the federal government. The irony of this is almost laughable to me—if only it weren't so sad.
