Save Me From Upper Darby Art Zealots
In the meantime, there's this and my response:
If Tina Fey is guilty of a misdemeanor in romanticizing the importance of arts in schools then you're equally guilty of felony trivialization of the matter. I am a proud UD grad and former editor of their school paper - a job Tina happened to hold a few years later. Today it's 3rd grade fingerpainting getting the axe and before you know it it's music, sports, publications and other 'non essential' activities that develop critical thinking, socialization, and sense of community. Perhaps I didn't see you full piece but it appears you sidestepped the central issue of local property tax diversion to out of district charter schools. Have you checked on the state of their resources? Even if you don't think you insulted public school parents with your parody, I wouldn't want to engage in a satire arms race with Ms. Fey unless the Delco Times is a larger launch pad than newspaper circulation reports suggest.
Hagen Jeffrey Fekete, UDHS/Acorn - Class of 1980Slippery slope arguments don't impress me. As for Ms. Fey, she can bring it on. What's she gonna' do, dress up like me as on SNL? She already stole my arms for the cover of Bossypants. I'm not a-scared-a her. Cheers.
On second thought, those aren't my arms.
