That was my response as well, after discussing this isues with my CTU

assembly.  They were not entirely pleased with it, but at that time had
not fully read it.

The speed and venom of the WSW turn on the CTU leadership is just
pathetic -- both in its political argumentation as well as its totall
meaninglessness in the real struggle to save public education in
