The Universal Pre-K Scam
Did you go to preschool? When I was growing up, few kids did. But now there is a new movement that says every child in America should have a chance to start school before kindergarten — at taxpayer expense. It’s part of President Obama’s massive spending plans. His “stimulus” bill includes an Early Learning Challenge Grant to encourage states to “Develop a cutting-edge plan to raise the quality of your early learning programs”. It’s a popular idea. Sixty-seven percent of Americans favor universal pre-K funded by the government. But I doubt that most Americans have thought it through.

Crimes of State
WASHINGTON — Former Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori was sentenced to 25 years in prison this week by Peru’s Supreme Court in connection with two massacres committed by a death squad known as the Colina group, as well as the kidnapping of a journalist and a businessman. The precedent-setting trial, which international observers have said met high standards of due process, establishes the responsibility of those who govern over dirty wars conducted without written orders. Between 1991 and 1992, the Colina group, an army detachment charged with combating the terrorist organization Shining Path, killed at least 50 Peruvians in nine separate actions. Fujimori’s trial focused on two of them — the deaths of 15 people in November 1991 during a barbecue in the poor Lima neighborhood of Barrios Altos, and the kidnapping and killing, in July 1992, of nine students and a professor from La Cantuta University. Fujimori contended that the absence of written or audiovisual proof that he had given the orders warranted his acquittal.
