Travel day here

Posted By on Sun, May 12, 2013 at 6:00 AM

I'm going to be out of pocket most of the day winding my way home. So proceed at your own risk and speed. Not much to report this morning;

* SCHOOL CHOICE MEANS WHAT? A good rundown in Stephens Media on another poorly constructed law (see the handgun "journey" law) that appears to raise far more questions than it answers. It's the cobbled up compromise to preserve "school choice," or the system that has been heavily used to allow children to flee school districts unacceptable to their parents for a variety of reasons — often race, sometimes football, sometimes class, sometimes even academic reasons. I like the legal theory that, since Arkansas fought so hard to ignore the dictates of Brown v. Board of Education and still has a shameful legacy to show for it, that transfers simply to live in a more agreeable racial setting ought to continue to be suspect. Antonin Scalia and the Billionaire Boys Club might disagree.
