Dear Alyson Klein,

Re: Arne Duncan's Back-to-School Bus Tour to Focus on Preschool through Career:

One can no more "focus" on "preschool through career" than one can "focus" on "everywhere between Los Angeles and New York" or on "the entire history of Western Civilization."

That headline sounds exactly like a "Doh! Nuts" Duncan description. What a dope! Arne is the Democrats' very own Dan Quayle.
