The Dublin School District here in central Ohio has deigned to allow kids to watch tomorrow's speech IF they bring a permission slip from their parents, allowing them to leave the classroom and watch the telecast in a designated area! Here's a copy of the "permission slip" I have written:
"Despite the warnings of right-wing radio hosts, and fully cognizant that my daughter risks learning a lesson in civics, I, nonetheless, grant her permission to watch a televised address by the duly-elected leader of these United States, President Barack Obama, on the controversial subject of the importance of school."
(Anyone else is welcome to use it, if necessary.)
