AOL news had an item that was worth reading today: http://news.aol.com/story/_a/archivists-block-release-of-clinton/20080307080009990001?ncid=NWS00010000000001
In other words, the archivists at the Clinton Library were worried that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request about Former President Clinton's pardons would become a liability for Hillary Clinton's election. It has now just become fodder for most people to say "What is the President Clinton's Library now trying to keep hidden from the public eye? ". Face the music folks, President Clinton's final days were troublesome. It included some massive amounts of Presidential pardons. I'm pretty sure that Bill Clinton didn't expect that 8 years later, his own wife would be running for public office, much less for the senator's seat as a NY Carpetbagger lady. How much will we find out in the coming days of what Hillary Clinton is like? Will she complain, in a royal way, about how Bill Clinton abused his "Presidential Pardons" privilege and promise if elected not to abuse it herself? Or will Hillary just say "Oh that's Bill's problems, NOT MINE". Hillary ought to remember this: The acts of Bill Clinton's past will reflect on her as well in the present!
St.Mary's School for the Deaf held an in school and After school protest over a dismissal of a math teacher. I say a SEMPER FI BRAVO for the kids. But to the administrators of St. Mary's School for the Deaf: I give you a 1000 PIES OF SHAME IN THE FACE!! It was shameful that they decided to punish the students with a NO AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES FOR A WEEK!
Now that's excessive. Even though it was a quiet and civil protest. The students and parents were actually exercising their civil rights in that matter. I hope the administrators reconsider their decisions about their staff and lift the punishment early. After all, it's nearly Easter and forgiveness and pardon should be handed out fairly.
