Another Secretary Goes Cuckoo

CNN.com - Education secretary condemns public show with gay characters - Jan 26, 2005

Irony abounds:

The nation's new education secretary denounced PBS on Tuesday for spending public money on a cartoon with lesbian characters, saying many parents would not want children exposed to such lifestyles.

So... which is it that the Secretary of Education finds worse: a) that a show for kids shows gay and lesbians, and that a parent who's parked their kid in front of the TV might expose their kid to worlds that they don't live in, or b) that government money was spent to do so?

People have got to realize, just because you don't like a "lifestyle", doesn't mean no one should hear of it. And people have to realize, just because you put some money into the government, doesn't mean you own the whole thing.
