More on bullying

So our local junior high now has an Anti-Bullying Task Force. Good cess to them.

As I was thinking over the issue of bullying, I recalled Reinhold Niebuhr's classic, Moral Man and Immoral Society. I would recommend it to those wrestling with this issue.

In fact, I think I might re-read the book, myself, and see if it lives up to the high regard it holds in my memory.
