    It's called irony, Mumia.  Christopher put forth that if there were no
public education that we (the private schoolers) were implying that only the
rich or wealthy could afford to have an education.  He then went on to point
out that a parent could choose what public school their child went to by
moving into that schools district.  My response was using his own words
against him because some of the best public schools are in districts that only
the wealthy can afford a home!  IE, if he considers that a choice then he's no
better than what he was damning us for.
