People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
If you screw up someone's name like that, I could say it "denotes a lack of racial sensitivity" and that it "takes actual effort to mislabel a name to the severity of a racial slur".
Both are typos, yet to suit our silly purposes we grant such likely simple errors immense amounts of power. How often have you done something similar with regard to Iran or Iraq or any other object or word with similar spellings? I bet it was often enough.

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
My sister teaches at an inner city school. It's a ****ing zoo.
Your assertion that all the dumb kids live in Red States like Oklahoma is flat wrong. The fact is that the wealthier the school district, the better the scores. So, find out which school districts have the highest # of free and reduced lunches and that will pretty much clue you in on their academic pedigree. The political affiliation of the majority of the citizens of the state has nothing to do with it.

they didn't call Iraq Iran, they stuck EGYPT in there
