I join with Carmen from All About Race in insisting that George W. Bush not be allowed to screw up anymore than he already has.
From Carol H. Rasco, president and CEO, of Reading Is Fundamental (RIF):
“President Bush’s proposed budget calling for the elimination of Reading Is Fundamental’s (RIF) Inexpensive Book Distribution program would be devastating to the 4.6 million children and their families who receive free books and reading encouragement from RIF programs at nearly 20,000 locations throughout the U.S.”
“Unless Congress reinstates $26 million in funding for this program, RIF will not be able to distribute 16 million books annually to the nation’s youngest and most at-risk children. RIF programs in schools, childcare centers, migrant programs, military bases, and other locations serve children from low-income families, children with disabilities, foster and homeless children, and children without access to libraries.”

Kindly Post this with a hat-tip to Carmen.
Thank you, Carmen.
