Re: “One of these things ...

Anthony Lane is to be commeneded for his investigative writing skills (and his ability to make some of his readers chuckle). It took a lot of digging into the bowels of the Fall 2007 edition of The Old Schoolhouse (TOS) to come up with my article on making apple cider. Evidently the significant volume of beneficial articles about the practice of homeschooling that preceded my piece did not fit his chosen slant, nor advance his desired meme that would present homeschoolers as backward, boorish, and a threat to progressive culture. Somehow, in Lane's view, squeezing fresh apples for their juice, drying your clothes outside (both very "green" practices, BTW) and homeschooling the children you care about are all "blessings" that we would be better off avoiding. If Mr. Lane found "red meat" for his case against homeschoolers in my apple cider article, he'll surely find new heights of rapture in my upcoming TOS article about nuclear power. I'm glad I could be a benefit to him.
