Boy, We Hate Different Points of View

The Colorado high school teacher, Jay Bennish, who tried to get his students to think about whether Bush and Hitler were "similiar", was on the Today show this morning. Seemed like a smart and reasonable guy to me. (And he was smart enough to cut his hair off before going on national TV). He was suspended by the school and has been beaten up senselessly by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity - two guys that aren't qualified to be high school teachers. Let's teach our kids not to think critically. Let's not challenge them. That will make us all safe.
