When George Will writes about the NEA

"Many NEA ideas defy caricature, such as the suggestion that 12th-graders soothe their souls by reading Dr. Seuss books. The NEA represents, and presumably reflects the mentality of, the people who are delivering -- inflicting? -- public education. That is as frightening, in its way, as any foreign threat."

I am reminded of P. J. O'Rourke's comment once upon a time that ever since the XFL was canceled for not being stupid enough, it's apparent that our internal enemies have already won.
