The knives are out for our stupid (and, at this moment, quite possibly dirty - dude loves the outdoors) Education Secretary over his offensive comment to a six year-old girl. Riordan's apology fell on deaf ears - the NAACP as well as others have called for his resignation. The always energetic forum kiddies at Eschaton hammer him here.
