Be efficient : be primitive.

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

Be efficient : be primitive. The WTC was not destroyed by some hight-tech gadget but by brute force : planes used as middle-age battering rams. Let us be as efficient as our ennemies can be. Do not email, just print the article (one sheet, front and back : use the printer friendly version) and SNAIL-MAIL the article to :

Mr. Joel Klein, Chancellor, New York City Department of Education, 52 Chambers St., Rm # 320, B4, NY, NY 10007

Emails are as easy to put in the bin than to send, when it's a different story with paper letters. Although paper letters can be thrown to the bin too, paper letters allow to visualize the real amount of protest. A letter (with it's enveloppe) is, say, a millimeter : just make the calculation of the height for 1.000 letters... Yes : ONE METER height ! And that is even worse when crumpled in the bin... :-) And for 3.000 letters ? Yes : THREE meters height ! Much more talking than 1.000 or 3.000 emails, for sure...
