Them That Needs It

If free education for all is too expensive for the Republicans, Edward Bellamy has a perfectly logical suggestion in Looking Backward:

“If, indeed, we could not afford to educate everybody, we should choose the coarsest and dullest by nature, rather than the brightest, to receive what education we could give. The naturally refined and intellectual can better dispense with aids to culture than those less fortunate in natural endowments.”

Great! But wait. What's going to happen when the Republicans find out all their brightest kids are turning into Democrats?

Ah hah! So THAT's how Donald Trump got into the Wharton School!

Yours very crankily,
