OMT One Man's Trash...from Norman Leahy

Oh Really?

The feature article in today's WSJ by Miriam Jordan discusses illegal immigration and a promising Princeton student who has turned himself in as an "undocumented immigrant."

It's a nice set-up, until, right before the jump, comes this:

The Constitution guarantees a public-school K-12 education for every child in the U.S.

Oh Really? That's in the Constitution? I'm sure that would be news to Mr. Madison.

The Weekend Journal has taken a few knocks for being much softer than its weekday counterpart. Add another big, nasty rap for allowing this howler to appear on the front page.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
