Here are my thoughts on this. While this man is entitled to his political beliefs, this story raises troubling concerns about teacher conduct. If he did this while on school time, he should face disciplinary action. However, even if he did not, he still should be punished, as he is advocating a crime by calling for supporters to acquire personal information on Tea Party members. In this age of identity theft, such actions can not be taken lightly. Further, he is a public representative and his actions do not reflect well upon his employer, or the larger community.

Thanks to the Society for Military History website for making me aware of this online military history publication. A solid group of scholars, who organized as the Michigan War Studies Group created the Michigan War Studies Review, which, according to the announcement on the SMH website, is seeking contributors. I urge everyone to subscribe to this publication,which is free, and to tell others interested in military history about this site.
