I love stories like this XLII

A 16-year-old student at Overland High School in Cherry Creek, CO, came forward with a recording of his geography teacher, Jay Bennish, delivering an anti-Bush rant to his students. You can listen to the whole 20-minute recording here. The Denver Post has the story.

I noted with interest the reaction of lots of the other students at Overland. Bennish's lawyer looks to file a federal lawsuit calling it a "freedom of speech" issue. Maybe even get a court order to get Bennish re-instated into his classroom.

Well, Bennish will get to write a book about his experience, get a half-million dollar advance for it, and get to appear on Oprah and Air America. He'll have a bit more than 15 minutes of fame. Maybe he'll be tabbed for vice president on a Cindy Sheehan for President ticket.
