Teacher Pioneers Progressive Politics: An Interview With Tony Barr (Discussion)

Professor Aaron Barlow recently interviewed Tony Barr, a high school teacher with a penchant for progressive politics from Pennsylvania's 9th Congressional district. The text of the interview is now posted on the Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

Tony Barr teaches high-school students with learning difficulties in the heart of Pennsylvania, the state's ninth Congressional District. A dedicated progressive, Barr has taken on the thankless task of bringing critical issues to public attention in one of the most conservative areas of the state.

Professor Barlow had previously interviewed Mr. Barr in October of 2006, when Tony was running for Congress against Bill Shuster.  It was Mr. Barr's first of two attempts to win the heavily Republican district.

Last Night's Obama Victories

Well, I for one was pleased to see Obama have such a sweeping victory yesterday. Perhaps its a case of the devil I don't know as opposed to the Clintons who in my opinion planted the seeds of the present policy and economic debacle. PLEASE DON'T GET ME WRONG the Democrats including of course the Clintons live in a different universe than the Bush Administration. I would vote for Bill, for Hillary. for anyone on the Democratic ticket this election. But I am voting for Obama in next Tuesday's VA primary.
