Barbra Streisand has launched a new spelling error-ridden dispatch on the Internet -- a dispatch that mocks President Bush for being a "C student!"
In her February 28th, 2006 essay, Streisand flubs 11 words, a personal record.
I would bet that Ms. Streisand simply dictated her rant to a product of the California public schools. But then the actual purpose of the public school systems since the time of John Dewey has been indoctrination in the dogma of Socialism. Thus it is no surprise that skills that are useful for living in the real world are given a lower priority.
I will confess that English was my worst subject in school but I do routinely use a spell checker and I do care when I find a mistake in one of my own rants. Usually this is a skipped or misplaced word. (I just caught and corrected one in the previous sentence.)
Of course the posturing of mentally and morally deficient individuals can be quite amusing as long as it is temporally brief. I once tried to view a stolen (by a friend from a local neo-nazi) copy of TRIUMPH OF THE WILL and that four hour cinematic spectacle of moral posturing had literally put me to sleep.
