Kit at By The Brook is up in arms over a mandatory English assignment given her daughter at her "quasi-Catholic" high school:
Write a letter to President-Elect Obama congratulating him on his inauguration. It must be positive, and not exceed 250 words.
The letter is to be emailed to both the teacher and the local newspaper.
While I can think of a couple of positive things I might write given such an assignment, there is no way my overall tone would be anything but negative.
That is also Kit's problem - and her daughter's.
Kit concludes her take on the situation with
I cannot comprehend the goose-stepping mentality the Obamaniacs have...and the fact that said mentality has infiltrated a Catholic High School where I'm paying (a lot) for viral immorality to be downloaded into my child's head, well, it sickens me.
Kit filed this post under DOR Atrocities, where it joins well over a dozen others. They're all here and all worth a read.
