    Dennis Redovich’s howler of the week:

    Greenspan in recent congressional testimony said, “job growth should strengthen in coming months as the result of rebounding economic growth.” “Greenspan said that upgrading educational opportunities for low skilled workers in America is the best way to deal with increased global competition.”

    Nothing could be further from the truth!

    Amen! Preach it, brother! What Greenspan meant, which apparently went over Mr. Redovich’s head, was that as jobs move overseas, American’s need to be prepared for the “new” jobs (whatever they are) that the American economy will create. Education is the way. Except, I guess, in Mr. Redovich’s world.

    Well, at least he’s consistent.

    Speaking of tin hats, I thought that was supposed to be an education related article. The further your read the more he sounds like Gephardt.
