No longer do we learn through subject and verb, but rather through a verbal hybrid of images and slogans designed to spare us the rigors of closely examining issues for ourselves.

Our preoccupation with television imagery has helped make this generation curiously artificial and particularly susceptible to the counterfeit. Essayist Michael J Arlen has called it "The tyranny of the visual." And countless other critics have lamented about the perils of images supplanting words in this culture.

What prompted the Federal Government to get involved in the education of our nation's children-

The Federal Government has not always played a role in American Education. When the founding fathers wrote the establishment clause into the First Amendment they weren't thinking about education, because the Federal government had no role in education at that time. As in many other areas, States were free to do what they deemed best.

Last Tuesday's "Rock the Vote" debate among Democratic presidential hopefuls solidifies that conclusion.

Aside from the usual attempts to be hip (including discussion of marijuana and who is best to party with), the most revealing incident in the debate was when Al Sharpton questioned Howard Dean on his October comment about the Confederate flag. Dean was quoted in the Des Moines Register as saying, "I still want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks." He later apologized for the remark. <br><br>Note: David N.

Although one result of the Catholic Church's traumatic clergy-sex scandal last year was the mandating of "personal safety training" sex-education programs to protect the next generation of youngsters in Catholic schools, one of the most popular such programs was designed by prostitution advocates, according to outraged parents in several dioceses using it.

The public schools are on a campaign to save their schools - but, more importantly, their jobs.

Our public schools have become very savvy over the years at using the media for their purposes. They have used it for fund-raising, to pass mileage levies against taxpayers, to influence public opinion and now to discredit homeschooling.

Universities are sorry institutions.

Today we'll destroy the universities and drive professors into the streets to starve, perhaps pulling themselves by their fingernails and feeding on remnants of discarded hamburgers. This will reform western civilization. (This is a full-service column. It doesn't mess with the petty stuff.)

A fifth grade student at the King Khaled Air Base Elementary School in Khamis Mushayt required stitches to his head after being struck by a female teacher for not doing his homework.

"We would all get beaten. We were beaten with canes, wooden paddles, hands, even plastic tubing. Sometimes we were hit hard enough to leave bruises. And because it was done in front of everyone, it was humiliating. We got hit for not doing our homework, talking in class, just normal kid's stuff," he said.<br><br>Although the practice is widespread, it is illegal to strike a child in schools in Saudi Arabia.

Jim Dore of Anchorage has filed as a Republican and Mike Layne of Barrow has filed as a Democrat.

Dore, who works part-time as a framing carpenter so he can help his wife homeschool their daughter, said he views himself as a conservative alternative to Murkowski. He filed as a Republican because the state's closed primary system favors conservative candidates, he said.
