On September 8, President Obama is going to speak to all public school students in the nation.
For those of you from Across the Pond, we've never had a President do this before. And for those of you who haven't read 1984, well, go get a copy.
Yeah, part of me is thinking, "Go get a copy before they wise up and ban it."
Update--I have since read that in 1991, GHWBush did address the nation's schoolchildren.
OK, so sue me: I had no kids at the time, was not in the school system myself, and I was also living overseas. But I stand by my general creeped-out-ness. Not really sold on the President asking my kids what they'll do to help him.
