Mary Landrieu Defends Herself 

In a letter to the editor to the Washington Post the Senator from Louisiana argues that her treatment of D.C. as a child who has lost his way was justified:

The requirement that these charter schools be given preference in acquiring surplus school properties is not a new provision, as the Nov. 24 editorial "Sen. Landrieu's Lash" suggested. For more than 10 years, D.C. law has required that these charter schools be given this preference.

But despite this provision and the obvious and compelling need of these emerging schools, a January report from the city's deputy mayor found that only 13 of 38 schools have been made available to charter schools.

Maybe next she will tell the Mayor exactly which empty buildings should be turned over to the charter schools she feels are deserving of these prizes.
