There’s a surprise

A reader alerts me to the fact that the teachers-taunting-children story was, as I suspected, nonsense.

A few days after a flap over some educators in Maine schools allegedly making inappropriate, negative comments to members of military families, the head of the Maine Army National Guard says it has been blown out of proportion. And Maine teachers say educators typically take an even-handed approach to sensitive issues in the classroom.

The hate-Americans-first types are always awfully quick to jump on these things, aren’t they?
