Today I was unlucky enough to end up at the Barclay School Supply store, in downtown Brooklyn. The place is a monument to educational incompetence. Amidst the dizzying array of commercial teaching aids, forlorn & rather bored teachers wander, gathering their materials. One woman, chatting on her cell phone, was discussing recent lessons with a New York City theme:
"Somebody did the Statue of Liberty, & the Empire State Building's been done too. Still, there's a lot of city landmines left, aren't there?"
