Suffer the Little Children . . .

The Bush legacy:

While current national data are not available, the number of schoolchildren in homeless families appears to have risen by 75 percent to 100 percent in many districts over the last two years, according to Barbara Duffield, policy director of the National Association for the Education of Homeless Children and Youth, an advocacy group.

There were 679,000 homeless students reported in 2006-7, a total that surpassed one million by last spring, Ms. Duffield said.

Yeah -- so keep those e-mails coming to me about how George W. Bush was the greatest thing to happen to America since sliced bread. It's gallows humor, but humor nonetheless.

P.S. --- WWJD?
