From the NYTimes.... Seems that charter schools are a big part of the failed leave no child behind initiative.... also seems that charter schools aren't doing as well as the public schools they were supposed to replace.

Congratulations go out to President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela for winning his referendum. Seems folks in the White House weren't too happy until they remember that Venezuela sends the US 15% of our oil. Some folks in Texas may be making money off that. hmmm, I wonder who. Also, this from AFP via Hindustan Times... even though bush jr doesn't like Chavez, a stable Venezuela means lower oil prices which generally will help the shrub in the elections.
