Craig Westover is taking the Star Tribune's Nick Coleman to task over Coleman's overwrought coverage of the "plight" of the government schools. And he's not letting Coleman get away with name calling and putting the status quo over educating our kids. Check out the Westover-Coleman brawl at Westover's blog, along with some other excellent education and school choice musings.

Mitch Burg of the Northern Alliance Radio Network said that he will invite Mr. Coleman to air his views on the NARN radio show (Noon - 3:00 p.m. Saturdays on AM 1280 The Patriot). My guess is that Coleman will continue to hurl names at Westover and other pro-school choice folks -- from the cozy protection of his newspaper column, rather than mano a mano at the Eagan studios of The Patriot.
