On September 8th, the president is scheduled to talk to schoolkids about education and getting ahead in America...although it's not entirely clear if he considers this to be one topic...or two very different ones.
Because in these days of Hope n' Change, kids notice things - like scholarships going to poor-performing minority students instead of National Merit Scholars. And a much-praised Supreme Court judge like Sonia Sotomayor ruling that skin color is more important than test results when it comes to job promotions. And a president who declared that a policeman is "stupid" simply because he's white.
See, this is the problem with trying to educate kids, Mr president...they pay more attention to what you do than what you say.
