Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

L.A. school on polluted grounds named after Al Gore

On the first day of school, irony will be the feature menu item!  Excerpt:

School district officials insist that the Arlington Heights property is clean and safe. And they’ve pledged to check vapor monitors and groundwater wells to make sure.

The $75.5-million Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Sciences will open Sept. 13 for about 675 students. As he was with Bill Clinton (who has an L.A. middle school named after him), Gore is second on the ticket to Rachel Carson, the late author credited with helping launch the modern environmental movement.

“Renaming this terribly contaminated school after famous environmental advocates is an affront to the great work that these individuals have done to protect the public’s health from harm,” an environmental coalition wrote in a letter to the Los Angeles Unified School District. Making sure the school is safe “would be an even better way to honor their contribution to society.”

No word yet on the school’s mascot, but rumor has it that the students will decide between the Crazed Sex Poodles or the Fighting Manbearpigs.
