Bleeding Cool says that a Maryland Democrat is mailing out a bunch of scary fliers saying that she will protect education. Because God forbid the children should be forced to read funnybooks, right?
Look: I am not suggesting that Superman comics (especially the awful Superman comics DC is putting out these days) should be part of the curriculum. But I am saying that comics are a great way to get kids interested in reading. Some kids manage to overcome reading disabilities using comics as a stepping stone. Comics can make a great ESL teaching tool. And trying to use them as a fear tactic is just kind of lame in general. Poorly played, Maryland Democrats.
