Actually, what we did was hand out voter registration
forms. That's it. Better'n uzis.

Corrupt people don't usually admit to anything. They
slink off before getting caught, if at all possible.

Again, our strategy @ Americans for Civic Participation
was to encourage participation in the political process.
Of course that's corrupt too. Of course that's why we
encourage participation, vs. yielding to apathy. Which
reminds me, weren't we supposed to be seeing new gov't
specificiations re voting machines sometime this January.
I could have sworn... I'll go back and check the media.

That's a fair demand I suppose. But look at it this way:
we all live with the consequences of poor education (call
it what you will -- war on terror?).

We live in intellectual squalor, suffer living standards
way way below what we might experience, were we to not
malpractice the way we do. The wages of sin, ya know.

And another thing: it's *everyone's* responsibility to
teach. Don't hesitate to call yourself one. As to
whether you're a pro... it's up to each school to set
standards.
