Institutional Malfeasance

Institutional Malfeasance   "If destruction be our lot, we ourselves must be its author and its finisher."   These words were spoken by Abraham Lincoln… (for those of you who are currently in public school, the robot guy at Disneyland with the funny beard)… and they ring true today.   Over the last week, we have seen the deconstruction of...
