More Stupid State Of The Union Fun
If like me you are trying to avoid doing any real work today, there's a fun little gizmo in the NYT that lets you see how often and where a word shows up in one of the SOTU speeches of the last six years.
Based on a quick search for schools, education, and no child, it seems pretty clear that this speech was less focused on education than others in the past.
I count eight mentions for schools in 2001, 11 mentions in 2004, but just 4 last night. But you better check for yourself - you know how bad I am at counting.
