Caring for your kids

Funny Phil Gramm story:
You know my favorite Phil Gramm story, right? (One of them, anyway.) He’s on MacNeil-Lehrer (I believe) with some woman from the education establishment (what Bill Bennett used to call “the Blob”). Gramm says, “My educational policies are based on the fact that I care more about my children than you do.” The woman says, “No, you don’t.” Gramm says, “Okay: What are their names?”
Heck, even I know more about Phil Gramm's kids than the representative from Big Education (no seriously, I've met his son, Jeff Graham). Want to help kids? Empower their parents instead of bureaucrats.
