Somebody threw over my transom an excerpt from the President’s Briefing Book preparing him to visit Herndon Elementary School. I can’t verify its authenticity, but here it is: Secretary Riley chose HES because it’s handy, fitting neatly into Monday morning’s ed-op slot before you skip to Moscow in the afternoon and because its diversity ratio is in heavy overdrive. Intelligence agencies confirm that in the last 3 years at HES minority student population has jumped from 14 to 50%, but caution that many of these students come from highly educated families steeped in strict moral codes of other cultures.
