What Fair & Balanced Would Look Like

Well, UNfair and balanced, anyway, which would still be an improvement.

Flopping Aces [High Praise!] ponders the question, “What if the Press Covered the Public School System in the US the Way it Covers the Catholic Church?”

It begins thusly:

Fresh off of the embarrassment of having to remove a quote from a mass murderer from the Department of Education’s web site, the embattled Arne Duncan continues to struggle as the head of an agency that fights to adapt to modern times and is mired in sexual abuse scandals. Despite frequent claims from educators that what they do is for the children, this is difficult to reconcile in the face of teachers guilty of sexual misconduct who can not be terminated from their lucrative contracts at a time that so many local municipalities struggle to make budgetary ends meet. For that matter, even as these scandals continue to plague our school system the only event that warranted comment from the Secretary seemed to be only because the Penn State Sandusky scandal was one of a magnitude that even his own office could no longer ignore.

Symbol of the Real America?

In the comments to a recent post, T Rich [High Praise!] said:

As Bill Whittle rightly reminds us, we are “the remnant” and there are more of us than we know about. We come together in places like this much like the early Christians did in the catacombs. We bolster each other’s spirits and fuel each other’s flame for freedom.

Which made me recall that early Christians used to covertly signal to each other with the Fish symbol.

So… what symbol should the last of America’s freedom-lovers (or, if we’re fortunate, the first of their return) use to covertly signal to each other?

My suggestion here.

Yours in the comments, please.

This week’s uncaptioned picture for you to play with:


Kris for being well-versed in classic Danny Kaye movies.


PRODUCTION NOTES:
#1: When creating lolbama! pictures, please caption with either black or white text, as colors like red and yellow tend to blur badly when I compress the images.

#2: Standard image size for these posts is 350px wide by whatever high. If you can have your images 350px wide before you caption them, I won’t end up shrinking your captions into illegibility when I re-size the images.

MAKE YOUR OWN: The free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

STYLE NOTE: Short captions are usually better. Your goal is 10 words or less, with humor value tending to increase exponentially as the number of words approaches 1.

IMAGE SOURCES: Lots of great Obama pics to be found at the White House Flickr page.

Send your submissions to lolterizt@gmail.com and – if they aren’t obscene (IMAO is a PG-13 site) and don’t suck too terribly bad – I’ll post them for you. Remember to include your name (and blog URL, if applicable) so I know who to thank.
