As if it weren’t already weird enough. I didn’t realize this, but apparently the content of our children’s textbooks is up for sale to the highest bidder. The most recent sponsor is the lobbying group that serves the guys making all those plastic bags. They’ve successfully mandated the state to censor any discussion of the negative impact they have on the natural environment. But they’be gone a step further and manufactured language to extol the virtues of plastic bags so future school children will have a great example of the mockery we’ve made out of our legislative democracy.
