I passed the tea party article on to my cultural diversity class. there is at least one person there who will be able to read it.

it is always difficult to go against the social order, even in a group of two.

Yikes @ the teaching article and comments. Somewhat related... I highly recommend this book http://amzn.com/0345409469, for all sorts of reasons, but some of it spends a while going into more political stuff and the state of the American school system, and there really is a ton of seriously awful stuff going on out there.
