Once you get past the misleading headline from this morning's Union Leader, 'Nickel and Dimed' Banned in Bedford, (it was not banned from Bedford, it was removed from the public school finance class curriculum) you will find that while the book is out, some of the stupidity remains.
Cara Procek, who abstained from the vote, is the town’s middle school curriculum coordinator.
“I think it’s important the committee doesn’t lose sight of the fact that this book went through the review process” and was approved, she said.
So what is she trying to say here?
Ms. Procek should be inferring that the review process is flawed, but I get the feeling based on her abstention that she is defending a process that chose the profanity riddled, anti-religious, socialist screed over every other option.
Makes you wonder why they rejected the other choices? Not enough profanity. No hatred for the greedy corporate culture. No anti religious references. Too much of that boring finance stuff?
Wait, here's a lovely book by a socialist hack, lets use that!
I have a solution. The people of Bedford should start electing the curriculum committee like they would a budget or planning committee. That should shake things up a bit.
