Her suggestion...well, how about have her write a letter to GW Bush to persuade him to help save the rainforest. She was serious.

I for a moment thought about having my daughter write a letter to the teacher explaining why each and every American should own as many goddam firearms as they can afford. But then I realized that I would be just as bad as her. So, I had my daughter write a persuasive letter to her classmates about the importance of education.

...and this is in Nebraska...I can only imagine what it's like on the coasts.
This is exactly what I'm referring to. What you see as a teacher using a child as a political pawn, I see as a lesson in activism for a child.

Seriously, did you really think in a million years that having a teacher writing a letter to the president about the rainforests was part of a political ploy?
