More Adventures In Wingnuttery

Teachers Unions' More Dangerous Than Nuclear Armed Al-Quaeda, Says Talk Radio Host Neal Boortz:

“Look, Al Qaeda, they could bring in a nuke into this country and kill 100,000 people with a well-placed nuke somewhere. Ok. We would recover from that. It would be a terrible tragedy, but the teachers unions in this country can destroy a generation.”

I've gotta tell you, this is a great era we live in. Time was, a fruitcake like this would be relegated to standing on a corner on a piss- and vomit- stained bedsheet, screaming his rants at passing traffic until the men with the butterfly nets showed up to take him to a room with nice soft walls and a snazzy jacket with no sleeves. These days, he's a TV and radio star.

Come to think of it, though, he may have something there. I was WAY more afraid of my second grade teacher, Mrs. Connally, than I've ever been of Al-Quaeda.

I would say that I agree with you, but this nutjob may be right. I mean, have you ever had the evil Mrs. S for English? If you had, Dusty, you probably would never have taken up law, let alone writing.

Then again, Mr. Rickle, our alcoholic, lecherous math teacher, who thought he could teach us geometry and advanced algebra by screaming at us, inspired me to write.

In his class.
