On Thursday evening, the Arizona Town Hall held a Forum on Civic Engagement at Central High School in Phoenix. If a video archive of the event is posted on the internet, I'll link to it here.
It was a thought-provoking evening, and one deserving of a serious write-up, which I'll do later, but for now, I'm going to let my inner wiseass run wild for a moment.
John Huppenthal is Arizona's State Superintendent of Public Instruction. He, along with his predecessor Tom Horne (AZ's current Attorney General) has done everything within his power (and a few things that may be outside of his authority) to demonize Mexican-Americans and attacking the Mexican-American Studies program of the Tucson Unified School District.
With that background, Thursday's forum served up this week's moment of irony -
That's Huppenthal on the far right of the pic (of course).
I wonder if he appreciated, or even was aware of, the irony of appearing on a stage while under that quote?
