To the editor

After reading "Putting Millions Where Her Heart Is, in Schools" (June 16, 2006) in Education News online, I ran to find my copy of the real paper, to see if "All the News That's Fit to Print" is still on the masthead. Although I congratulate Ms Ross on being rich, lithe, and blond--ohmygosh! and unwrinkled--I searched and searched (in vain) in the Education section and in the World News section for news about yesterday's Mexican government attack on striking teachers in Oaxaca.

All the news that's fit to print? Surely not.
