Correct, and yes, it would be fun. (on the List I help run, highlighting
spelling errors by self-elected "Spelling Sherrifs" is permitted so long
as the spelling error introduces a different angle :-) ).

They will do anything they can to appear to be doing everything they can
"for the children" (see the federal government's reaction to the
cracking by a kid of their heavily-funded "internet porn-filter").
Effectiveness is secondary, followed a long way back by responsibility.
It's your fault you know. All you care about is the enormous wage and
the awed respect from children and parents. Damned teachers. "Won't
someone *please* think of the children" (gratuitous Simpsons quote).
