I don't want my children to grow up in a world where celebrity baby watch replaces watchdog journalism. They need real newspapers.
It's everything you want them to understand, right there, on the doorstep day after day: geography, civics, science, culture, right from wrong, honest to god heroes and the power of standing up for what you believe in. And occasionally, stuff that the people who make the laws, spend your taxes and run your schools don't want you to know.
Turn off the television. Unplug their video games. They need to know what you know.
We are putting a red flag in the flowerpot today. We might just leave it there.
