the second half of 2014, I would be delighted to send out to the recipients of this newsletter any announcement(s) that are prepared by such a facilitator.

During the past 36 months, Yours Truly has received many inquiries regarding when “Inner-City Holocaust and America’s ‘Apartheid’ Justice System (In Honor of Jonathan Kozol and In Memory of John Howard Griffin)” will be publicly available -- a book that is described at length in the second and third sections of

A partial answer was provided in a closing “footnote” to my Original Proposal for our 9/12/2012 meeting which was entitled “Gates Foundation Crimes Against US Education Policy” and which proposed focusing on “The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education” by Diane Ravitch -- N.Y.U.’s Research Professor of Education and a historian of education; a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution; and a former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education.

The closing footnote said --

“I have been asked many times since last Fall [the Fall of 2011] why ‘Inner-City Holocaust’ has not been published yet even though, in the heat of battle, I had said in the many letters to the 21 National and California governmental officials that their lack of support for their 10-million inner-city-children constituents should be an issue in their next election campaigns. Shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court refused last October [10/4/2011] to hear our final appeal, I decided to wait until after the November 2012 elections because the failure of the 43 news-media superstars and failure of the 21 governmental officials is a long-term challenge. And the long-term solution of an electronically-self-published book to be used for ethics classes in law schools and divinity schools, and in undergraduate courses in political science, ethics/philosophy, sociology, etc., does not need to interfere with the re-election chances of officials whose opponents are no more likely to lead us to The Promised Land.”

As the 2012 elections passed, it seemed equally prudent to wait until after the 2014 mid-term elections. [Though I am often amused over the thought that “Inner-City Holocaust and America’s ‘Apartheid’ Justice System” could have any impact on electoral politics, particularly since none of the 21 governmental officials appears from her/his lack of action to have thought so.]

Accordingly, it strikes me that the time is fast approaching (post-2014 elections) to attempt to begin the “tilting with windmills” in fighting for the hearts and minds of America’s next generation.

I hope to see all of you at our January 2015 meeting!!!

Your friend,

John K.
