Good Grief

Jim McMurtry, a Liberal Party candidate in Canada, has referred to homeschooling as "a form of child abuse" and said that homeschooling parents are "condemning their children to an impoverished, friendless, and segregated learning environment."

McMurtry's comments are so absurd that they don't deserve to be dignified by a response, but one hopes that our neighbors to the north will have the good sense not to vote for this very ill-informed man.

Comments like his make me feel like being very naughty and calling him Jim McMoron. Not mature, I know, but somehow it makes me feel just a wee bit better.
