Of course, this story is almost a month old. I didn't realize the LSM was so hard-up for "news" that they had to start recycling old sob stories.

"We were leaving anyhow, mostly because we want to start a family and we don't feel our children can get a decent education in the United States," said Brian Sinicki, of Laramie, Wyo.

He said America's schools fail children by not teaching subjects like philosophy and civics, subjects that he said would give Americans not only a deeper understanding of the world, but an appreciation for why they should be more actively involved in the political process, not only voting but staying informed.

Please. I don't know about Wyoming, but here we do teach civics... only not until high school, when it's pretty much too late to form anything cognizant out of a skull full of mush. That's why kids have parent, dipwad.
