"Pretty Soon All You'll Need To Graduate Is A Pencil"

People keep sending me that Tom Chapin video about standardized testing, which is OK, but this video -- a new bit from George Carlin -- is angrier (and funnier, I think) -- making fun of empty political slogans, educators who dumb down tests to make their schools look better, and the money moguls who run politics and the press.  Watch out, though, he's pretty intense and I think there might be some swear words in there: "It's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it."
