may not be reviewed by any court of law...

32 Words

John McCain
wants to suspend the campaign and cancel Friday's debate. No time, he says, for the democratic process when there's more than a trillion dollars in bailout money to be divvied-up. What's next, canceling the elections? Canceling the Constitution?

It's possible. Here's the 32 words in Paulson's bailout proposal everyone is afraid to mutter:

Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.

Will the Democrats allow this to pass, like the did the FISA bill, in the name of bipartisanship? Let's hope not.

An awsome, "failing" school

A N.Y. parent of a first-grader writes on Essential Blog (Coalition of Essential Schools) , “Why I love my daughter’s ‘failing’ school.”

My kids’ school missed scoring a C by .5 point. Now it’s faced with the possible removal of a beloved principal, financial penalties, reorganization, removal from the Empowerment Zone in which parents and teachers work together to make decisions they feel best for children as learners. All this despite ample evidence that the school is awesome.

Thanks for the heads up on this from Jill Davidson.
