A reader's comment forced me to go back and re-read Deb Meier's review of Barack Obama's speech and I'm afraid I misrepresented Deb's critique. While it's true that she was highly critical of the education part of Obama's speech, which is certainly understandable, I made it seem like she "found nothing to support" in the entire speech. Knowing Deb as I do, and knowing that she is now and has been a strong and consistent, while at times critical Obama supporter, I'm sure there was plenty in the rest of the speech that she might have applauded. But that's not what she was writing about. That should have been obvious. My apologies to my friend (still, I hope), colleague and teacher Deb Meier.
