Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

The State of Education Today

From The Poor Man Institute. This puts me in mind of back when I was in law school and teaching government at a couple of local community colleges in Houston to make ends meet. There were the two girls who told me they were dropping my course because it was "too hard," and besides they were just slumming in community college until they transferred to A&M. And there was the priceless look on students' faces when I told they had to write a 20 page research paper (double-spaced, and they had all semester to write it); you'd have thought I had told them to take out their own spleens using only a spork!
