The Gad-Blast

As you may recall, I have complained in the past about the near-impossible and mildy discombobulating task of reading both The Gadfly, from Fordham, and the NewsBlast, from PEN -- two publications from different points of view, both of whom insist on publishing late on Thursdays.

Anyway, to help everyone out, here's a "mash-up" of the two publications smushed together, which I like to call "The Gad-Blast." A sample:

WHAT THE PUBLIC REALLY WANTS ON EDUCATION... national standards and tests!

And, BEYOND NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ... an artful brouhaha.

Or, BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS WIN BROAD PRIZE FOR URBAN EDUCATION...what they know just ain't so.

See, now wasn't that easier?

UPDATE: Fordham's Mike Petrilli says that this is not nearly as funny as The Gadfly Show. PEN's Howie Shaffer says I missed a good (if not PC) one: "YOUTH PERCEPTIONS OF MENTAL ILLNESS: Bugged out."
