A New College for Bureaucrats

This New York Times article reports that former teacher Chris Asch is tapping Michelle Obama to build a new college for bureaucrats.

“The Public Service Academy can be Barack Obama’s Peace Corps,” Mr. Asch said. “He needs to take advantage of this moment when people are recognizing the importance of government and build institutions that will last.”

We're starting to sound more and more like France! (Hat tip to Don Hauptman.)

Thanks for noticing the article on the Public Service Academy, Marsha. I'm not sure what "we're getting more like France" indicates about your opinion of the idea, but I would be happy to talk with you more about it. Feel free to email me:
