Conservative Foundation Takes Side Of Inept Democratic Governor

Blagojevich In what seems like a particularly humorless and reactive moment, the Fordham Foundations' Gadfly takes the side of do-nothing scolds like Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on the Chicago-New Trier school funding protest (Blowing Hot Air In The Windy City). 

Remember when Fordham was funny and smart (and their positions had some coherence)? Now they just seem mean and clamorous.  (I should talk, but then again I'm not a fancy think tank with offices and all.)

In the meantime, the protest -- sending poor Chicago students to wealthy New Trier to
register for the first day of school -- has drawn national attention and -- maybe -- some funding equity for Illinois schoolchildren.
