Pedophilia, Public Education, and Other Crimes
In all fairness, Grisham may have merely wanted to ensure fair representation for these deeply-misunderstood members of society in the tradition of other highly-respected pedophile defenders like Hillary Clinton. This editor has absolutely no problem with society shedding a tear for the sufferings of pedophiles, as long as we follow-up such sensitive moments with swift executions. Death to pedophiles is the official editorial stance of this child-adoring magazine. Having dated a couple hotties who bore the lifelong psychosexual scars of childhood rape, I will happily strangle the bastards myself.
Speaking of scumbags who screw children, Fail highlights the widespread betrayal of trust and innocence more politely known as a public school education. I myself am a public school survivor. I had some wonderful teachers who were well-informed and highly-motivated, like Mr. Taylor who inspired our class to love literature and invited our class to visit his cottage in the woods. (No, he didn't invite us to his Neverland ranch or his Peter Pan bed. He was a good man not a creepy selfish freak.) I had some other teachers who could only be roused from drunken naps drooling on their desks by the opportunity to go on strike for higher pay with less hours.
As a professor in a public Mexican university, I've stood in shock and awe at ballsy colleagues working four hours a day (except for summers off and any other days they felt like canceling) who blocked highways to demand higher wages from taxpayers who lacked shoes. I've made a lot of enemies refusing to join such demonstrations, because I work for the elected representatives who are hired by the voters who should decide my salary and working conditions. Democracy is a very flawed system producing very flawed schools, but schools run by unelected union thugs are far, far worse. If you doubt me, I'll show you universities boasting countless new edifices built only for politico photo-ops with no books, chairs, or toilet paper for students inside.
