An eighth-grader can figure it out
May 11, 2010 - John D'Agostino
A recent "Notable & Quotable" piece appeared in The Wall Street Journal over the weekend, from Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who may run for president as a Republican, courtesy of Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson:
"A few days ago, I was having breakfast with my wife, my 91-year-old mother-in-law and daughters, 17 and 13. On TV there was a news report about the financial situation in Greece. Out of the blue, my 13-year-old said, 'This is going to be us pretty soon.' I almost dropped my fork. This is an eighth-grader.
Also, check out an interesting view from Ray Hall, who blogs for The Post-Journal in Jamestown on how our cities are not "urban," they are just large towns.
The two items may make sense to many — unless, of course, you favor the status quo.
