    INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE In response to the 13th Amendment story from the other day, Skip Oliva pointed me to this WashTimes article. The last graf is a killer:

    Mandatory community-service learning in schools — in which students not only perform public service, but write and talk about it — is essential, Mr. Culbertson added. Learning about what causes the problems “engages kids — that’s what gets them excited,” he said.

    This is nanny-statism at its worst: “We want kids to be engaged. We want our kids to volunteer. How can we do this? Force them under threat of not graduating.”
