Ah. The bathroom wars. Perhaps the dumbest thing to enter the public sphere of debate since whatever people were arguing about last week.
Whether you think we should allow junior high boys into the girls locker room, there should be NO question that such a ruling for public schools shouldn't come from the White House. Reasonable, freedom loving people should all agree. There shouldn't even be a question.
Sadly, all of the reasonable freedom-loving people have left the planet, and so a divided Kansas State Board of Education could not agree to issue a not-even-strongly-worded letter critical to the Obama Administrations diktat that junior high boys have access to naked pre-teens whenever they feel like it.
Alas, six cowards and sycophants on the state board-- a majority-- determined they "needed more time" to study the issue before issuing a gently worded letter opposing to federal overreach.
Take note: The pathetic, jelly-spined board members who voted to table a letter include Janet Waugh, Carolyn Wims-Campbell, Sally Cauble, Kathy Busch, Jim McNeice, and Jim Porter. Maybe it's time we find their replacements?
Those who opposed tabling a non-issue letter that would have done nothing but taken a stand on federal bullying included John Bacon, Steve Roberts, Deena Horst, and Ken Willard.
