California Governor Gavin Newsom and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis squared off in a debate last night, and one thing was crystal clear: the two could not be more diametrically opposed on every single political issue.

DeSantis also noted that California has one of the lowest literacy rates in the country, while Florida is number three for fourth grade reading.

“So, you should apologize for not getting your kids in school. Why didn’t you get the kids in school in the summer of 2020?” DeSantis asked as Newsom fumbled his answer.

The topic of books on gender in schools also made an appearance, and DeSantis again gave the right answers.

A suspect has been arrested in what police have called the “hate-motivated” shooting of three college students of Palestinian descent in the US state of Vermont.

It is impossible to ignore Israel’s painful parallels to the American playbook of the Vietnam War, including the indiscriminate killing of over 2 million Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Laotian civilians and the illegal use of white phosphorus in dense civilian areas then and now.

Part of the Great Circle of Life in American schools is that the smart teachers and administrators who like smart students devise tracking systems so the smart kids can have their own classes where they are taught at a quick, less boring rate and get into more advanced materials. Eventually, the dumb teachers and administrators who dislike smart kids cotton on to what the clever ones are doing and shut down tracking in the name of equity. But then the smart grown-ups figure out a new euphemism for tracking that fools the anti-smart forces for awhile.
