I just don’t know what to say about this “Letter to the Editor” of the Salt Lake Tribune (my old hometown paper):

Sometimes, if we just step back from the passions of politics and society for just a moment, we can see just how hysterically surreal our world is. Take, for example, the story “Sex topics put teacher under fire” (Tribune, Aug. 27).
And I quote: “Alpine School District officials are investigating [an] Orem High School teacher . . . after some parents complained she told their children to be open-minded about sexual orientation and same-sex marriage.”
God forbid actual thinking in schools, of all places! I suggest that if you want your kids to think exactly like you (to be narrow-minded), you should home school them. Then you could leave public education to the people who actually appreciate it.
