Apparently our history "professor" has learned nothing from the lessons of the ill-conceived 18th Amendment. How'd that work out Dr. Genius? Sadly , I must now spend part of my lesson planning preparing my kiddos to deal with the likes of people like you at their next level.

In the aftermath of the horrific Newtown, Conn., school massacre, Americans from all parts of the political spectrum agree that we need to pay more attention to mental health issues.

Over the past week, I've witnessed a disturbing outbreak of off-the-rails hatred toward gun owners and Second Amendment groups. Whatever your views on guns, we can all agree: The Newtown gunman was a monster who slaughtered his own mother, five heroic educators...
