Taking on the free-market fundamentalists

Chris Fitzsimon and Rob Schofield take on the free-market fundamentalists in two separate commentaries.

In is “The Follies” column, Fitzsimon examines higher education from the selling-out of our university systems to cronyism and privatization schemes.

Rob Schofield writes a Radical Right Reality Check about the take over of the Wake County School Board and the new members’ blatant disregard for open meeting laws in his commentary entitled “An embarrassment to themselves.”

They don’t realize it’s a complete sham so they start backpedaling. Too bad, there are enough real problems out there to worry about instead of this made-up junk.
