"A child's learning is the function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher." James Coleman, 1972

. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966

MSNBC: Leaning Forward for the Work Week and A Weekend in the Hole

From Monday thru Friday, MSNBC writers and hosts espouse a well-written version of anti-Fox mainstream messaging, with a reality-based lineup of liberals leaning forward to embrace the humane values and a sustainable multicultural pluriverse that offers a wholesome alternative to hate radio and TV.  However, when Progressive Queen Rachel signs off on Friday evening, the station is transformed into a round-the-clock incarceration desensitizing project, with Lock-Up, Hardcore Lock-Up, Lock-Up in Chains, and Lock-Up and Lock-Down, etc ad nauseum.  For someone who is unaccustomed to such raw cynicism and crass production values, it must seem mystifying.  What will be next? Dancing with the Leg Irons? Or The Amazing Race to the Feeding Line.  How about The Simple Lifer?
