    attempts to blame teachers for all manner of social failings flopping. Michelle Rhee is now a tainted figure, thanks in large part to publicity like yours and Diane Ravitch's sleeper best-seller, "The Death and Life of the Great American School System." Remember the pulp Hollywood propaganda feature with Maggie Gyllenhaal, "Won't Back Down"? Totally bombed. And it wasn't due to any lack of funding, promotion, or big names, believe me.

    This is an old line of attack. People are getting sick of it. The oligarchs need to back up and change gears.

    It's here they got the range/ and the machinery for change/ and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. --Leonard Cohen
