Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

I just spent the last two days finishing up a primary source document reader for our AP students.

I'm very pooped.

But it was interesting reading things like Lincoln's Cooper Union Speech, Wilson's war message to Congress, the 'smoking gun tape' and, yes, the Starr Report for the first time.

I just saved the little bastards $150 in textbooks.  Hope they appreciate that.
