UGH: President Bush and Education Secretary Rod Paige want school children across the nation to put their pencils down, put their hands over their hearts and join them next week in a national recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. The recitation is scheduled for 2 p.m. EDT on Sept. 17. (link via Wren’s Nest)

For some reason, each time something like this comes up I’m surprised at the shallow attempts behind these kinds of proclamations, and I get a vision in my head of ‘schoolchildren’ learning to goose-step. This kind of manipulation is ultimately based in powerlessness however, so I’m not really too worried. My eyes are getting a good roll now and again though – LOL.
