“What you’re seeing is just by looking at the location of these charters, more are located in areas that are underutilized than over capacity, but they are not the main driver of underutilization.” -- Sun-Times:  Union sees problem with charters being closer to under-capacity schools  
Times of Trenton Editorial
To fully appreciate the conditions at Trenton Central High School requires watching for showering plaster from the peeling ceilings, sidestepping warped floor tiles, and sniffing the musty odor of mold. -- "Gov. Chris Christie, please visit Trenton Central High School to witness deteriorating conditions"
The Wilmington 10
 Most of the defendants were young — some just high school age — when they were collectively sentenced to a total of more than 280 years in prison. Prison robbed them of the promise that their young lives had held. Even after the sentences were overturned, the notoriety associated with the case made it difficult for some of them to find or hold decent jobs, and sometimes led to their being shunned. -- NYT editorial

A dozen more killers? A hundred? More? How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill? -- Forbes

President Obama, who should have been alarmed that his re-election inspired a boom in gun sales, seems daunted at the prospect of taking on gun lovers, having handed the matter off to Joe Biden to study. The president seems to be setting the table for defeat. If only he had the visceral outrage of a Bloomberg. Who knows what could happen? -- NYT
