President Obama spoke on Syria tonight. If you didn't catch it or want to read the transcript, please go here.
I've also include this opinion piece by writer David Sirota on the push for military action by high level government officials and political analysts. Its title, "Take that, D.C. Gasbags! How Angry Americans May Stop a Disaster," should give you a sense of the blistering message. Read it and comment. (And to my 5th period students, pay particular attention to the Orwell reference, which is especially noteworthy considering we just finished reading his Politics and the English Language.) I'm very interested in your thoughts.
