Reiner Resigns

It's about time.

And although the universal pre-school initiative sounds like a good idea at first blush, I need someone to explain to me just a couple of things:

*Why some of California citizens should pay higher taxes so that Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes' child -- and other well-to-do tots -- will be able to attend preschool for free.

*Given the outrageous deficiencies of too much public education in this country, why we should be entrusting the education establishment with additional responsibilities.

*If the schools are as short on money as they claim, wouldn't any additional tax money be more wisely directed to solving the problems that -- according to the education establishment -- can only be solved by spending increases, rather than being spent on preschool.

Riddle me that, Batman!
