* What a refreshing ray of sunshine on a cloudy day it was to read Michael Kinsley's March 2 commentary, "It Takes a Snob to Know One," on [Fox News talk-show host] Bill O'Reilly. Finally some truth. O'Reilly exploits the anger and frustration in the country masterfully. He, like every other right-wing media personality, is nothing but a rabble-rouser and should be labeled such.
Recently one rabble-rouser host was bemoaning our education system in this country, attributing all the ills to liberal policies. None of these people would have a career if our education system were any better, because an educated populace would see right through their snake oil pitch and address its attention to more productive endeavors.
