A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Loony lawsuits: The idea of personal responsibility is disappearing from our culture. Why? Well, parents aren't teaching it to their kids.


Arizona English teacher Elizabeth Joice got a letter from a lawyer representing one of the students she failed. The letter asked her to take "whatever action is necessary" for the student to graduate or else the family would sue. Joice said the student plagiarized work, failed a paper and did not attend makeup sessions, among other things. School officials caved and the student was able to retake a test five hours before graduation and receive her diploma.


Just a few short years ago, parents were suing schools and teachers because their kids received diplomas, yet couldn't read a STOP sign. Now, parents don't care whether or not their kids can read, they just want the diploma.
