I thought things had gotten ludicrous when french fries became known as "freedom fries," but now things are absurdly surreal. The local school board has decided to rename the French foreign language classes Freedom, i.e. Freedom I, Freedom II, Freedom III, and Freedom IV.
The French--excuse me, Freedom--teachers are now supposed to supplement this language and culture course with discussion about how France has opposed the United States diplomatically in the past. Teachers are further encouraged to express pro-war and pro-administration opinions even if they disagree personally.
Quels enfants bureaucratiques ! Où est ma liberté ?
