There are times when all you can do is scratch your head and wonder about the idiocy of some people.
Noted Holocaust scholar and expert Deborah Lipstadt has an important essay at Tablet about a report that 8th-grade students in the school district of Rialto, California, were provided an assignment in which they are to debate whether or not the Holocaust actually happened.
This is scary stuff. Thankfully (see Below), the district dropped the assignment after protests began to roll in.
But what were they thinking? Who were these people who dreamed up this assignment? Who would let them within a mile of a school building?
And how many numbskulls are now wondering, "golly, why did they pull the assignment? Isn't it important to hear both sides?"
