Yeah, she has really come under fire for this one. Saw it on Fox News just an hour ago and if you search for "Sotomayor Firefighters" on Yahoo! News, a bunch of articles appear from prominent news reels. Some say it's bad, while some say it won't hurt her chances.

Default Thank God

All I can say is that the truth shall set us free.

And to scrap an exam because some people were projected to fail it? What?

No one did that for me when I was in school. What that does is to Instill and cultivate mediocrity. And we wonder why our great nation is on a continual slide downward in international test rankings, productivity, math and science skills, literacy.

There are elements in our society that aim to artificially weigh down high achievers, slow down progress and dumb everything down to their level. As long as we sit back and let that continue, making them feel “fairly treated”, we are as much to blame as they are.

I love this country and I love its potential.
