Dear Dr Pipes:

Little misrepresentations and inaccuracies will not matter to single minded fanatics like Debanjan Banerjee. Banerjee incorrectly states that Arizona wants to ban 'pedagogy of the oppressed'. Let me correct Banerjee. Arizona's secretary of education objects to the use of this book in the classrooms. Is Banerjee smart enough to know the differences and honest enough to accept them:

1) One person vs entire countries.

2) Objects vs bans

3) 'in schools' vs 'entire nations'

4) one book vs. many books.

And let me let Banerjee know. Should a day come when Arizona bans a book completely, US supreme court will not let Arizona survive in peace. don't get me worng. There will be no beheading, murders or suicide bombings but we will still be able to force Arizona to reverse the decision.
