re: Civics [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
A totally crazy Saturday-morning thought: Wouldn't George W.
Bush make an awesome high-school government teacher? Wouldn't it be something if
his post-presidential life would up being that kind of post-service service?
How's that for a model? Who needs Harvard visiting chairs and high-end lectures?
How about Crawford High? (Or wherever?) Reach out and touch the young before
they are jaded, or break them of the cynicism pop culture and possibly their
parents have passed down to them. Whatever you think of President Bush, he's a
likable guy in love with his country with some history and experience to share.
Like I said, crazy. Saturday. Have a good one.
Sorry, Lopez, he'll be too busy drinking himself to death to get up at 6 am and teach school.
