The War Against Teachers in Dark Times

It is ironic, in the unfolding nightmare in Newtown, Conn., that only in the midst of tragedy are teachers celebrated in ways that acknowledge the vital role they play every day in both protecting and educating our children. What is repressed in these moments is that teachers have been under attack by right-wing conservatives, religious fundamentalists and centrist Democrats since the beginning of the 1980s.

The Future of Gun Control in the Aftermath of Sandy Hook

As a result of a grotesque confluence of cultural iconography celebrating the virtues of an armed citizenry, political cowardice in the face of pro-gun lobbies like the NRA, and a judiciary that has redefined the meaning of the Second Amendment, we have become a nation bereft of effective gun control, reduced to waiting for the next firearm fueled massacre.
