Some writers can really turn a phrase.

"Just 3 weeks till Cinco de Mayo, the day schools in California take time out from itemizing the horrors of American history to celebrate the Mexican 'victory' at the Battle of Puebla. Please. They defeated a French regiment; that's not a battle, that's dodge ball."1

"It's the same way with the education establishment, and they know it. If vouchers were available, there would be such a mass exodus from the public education system that it would actually be dangerous, like opening the Walmart door on the day after Thanksgiving."2

"Anything about anyone who was different seemed possible. Heck, we believed that people from Massachusetts were capable of strange things, and it turned out we were right."3
