    for the decline in support for good education, both public and parochial.  A foundation like that you describe is fine & dandy for the children of the power-broking class, always was, won't likely change soon.  When the children of factory laborers and postmen and nurses and secretaries get the same foundation, as we did during the 1950s, they turn into the rabble, roused: the sixties.  The subsequent destruction of strong, knowledge-based education for all but the very entitled/doggedly insistent has probably been not so much accidental as inevitable, given the present mess.

    But those unpaid nuns just went ahead and taught everyone anyway. And the guys in charge really don't appreciate that.
