I'm sorry everyone, but I realized I messed up my comments setting, and some of you were leaving comments that weren't getting through. Completely my fault and I apologize.
I'll try to put back all the comments for the last couple of months. I really do want to hear from you, pro or con - as long as you're not obnoxious. You folks have Joel Klein in the pages of the Wall St. Journal speaking for you already.
Special apologies to stalwarts like jcg and Teacher Mom who posted and never got their stuff up. I think it's fixed.
