Not that I care all that much, but folks, let's be clear that Senator Kerry's now infamous remark about education and Iraq on Monday was made right here at Pasadena City College. No, I wasn't in attendance at the rally that featured Kerry, Antonio Villaraigosa, and Phil Angelides; I was giving a lecture on the Roman gods and the role of paranoia in the expansion of the Republic at the time, and that struck me as far more worthwhile for my students.
If Kerry's remark ends up hurting Democratic chances of retaking Congress, I will be one disgruntled Pasadena City College Lancer.
I don't blog Iraq or national politics. But those of you who do, and want to talk about Kerry's words on Monday, make sure you mention Pasadena City College. The darned New York Times just talked about a "California college", and that was disappointing. But a quick check of Google news shows at least some of the coverage of this minor tempest does include a specific reference to PCC.
