Politics: Beats getting beaten up at recess

I love kids. I hated junior high school. I love this story:

Theory: our politicians can behave an awful lot like seventh graders. Fact: Seventh grade is a great place to break into politics.

It’s from a Loop show coming up Friday night. But I’m sprinkling some of the stories around over the next day or so, including Tom Scheck’s fine story. And first thing up in the morning I’ll have one that looks at the non-voters that Sanden Totten did.


Disclaimer: I ran for student council in high school. I couldn’t come up with a speech on my own so I stole the one my sister gave the previous year. It was a great speech, delivered expertly. I got my rear end kicked in the election. They went with some football player.
