I wish there HAD been more stories about the background of Bush's czars (although he had about half as many as Obama does). I would definitely want to know if a racist, self-professed Communist who thought the government was behind 9/11 and that the opposing party was made up of "a-holes" was advising my president in any capacity. Or maybe there were no racist, self-professed Communists who thought the government was behind 9/11 advising Bush.
Although, admittedly, they all probably thought the opposing party was made up of "a-holes", too. Just probably smart enough not to get videotaped saying so.
I had a writing class this last semester which had Genesis 1-3 and Antigone assigned as required reading. At no point were students asked to think about God or Zeus. The theme we were supposed to be thinking about was "victimization".
