Here are interesting articles from the past week that are worth a read:
The Left vs. Minorities
"If anyone wanted to pick a time and place where the political left's avowed concern for minorities was definitively exposed as a fraud, it would be now -- and the place would be New York City, where far left Mayor Bill de Blasio has launched an attack on charter schools, cutting their funding, among other things.
"Why would anybody who has any concern at all about minority young people -- or even common decency -- want to destroy what progress has already been made?"
"Will America be a better and freer country three decades from now if the children who turn four in this decade spend most of their waking hours with members of a government teachers union rather than with their moms?

From the Facebook page of Mark Zuckerberg
"To keep the internet strong, we need to keep it secure."
Dear World ... Love, Ireland
“We have cute, unpronounceable names like Niamh, Caoimhe, Aongus and Daithí, which makes us very hard to chat up when you’re three sheets to the wind. We’re grand craic altogether.
