The Washington Supreme Court [sic] has ruled the state's voter-approved charter-school law unconstitutional [sic]. In a 6-3 ruling issued late Friday afternoon, the high court [sic] said that charter schools do not qualify as common, public schools and cannot receive public funding.This lethal terrorist act comes AFTER charter schools have spent a year forming and organizing, and already started this school year. WHERE WILL THE KIDS GO AFTER THE CHARTERS SHUT DOWN ABRUPTLY? Crime always wins. Every fucking time. Why do we losers continue to live a non-criminal life? Explain that to me. Please. No, don't bother. You can't. DAY 3 OF THE FINAL PURGE.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
