Coffee, tea, or e-

I won’t bother with a link; if you’re interested or amused, it will be easy enough to track this one down. What it is, the White House has a FaceBook page.

No, wait, that isn’t the story. Everyone has FB pages and twitter accounts.

On that WH FB page right now is an entry showing President Obama and a couple of kids — ages, genders, and ethnicities perfectly in balance — in a classroom, looking at an Apple screen.

The headline is “In a country where we expect free wi-fi with our coffee, shouldn’t we have it in our schools?

Have “it” in our schools? Does that refer to free wi-fi, or to coffee? Compare the hours your kids play with e-gadgets to the hours they spend getting exercise. Coffee in schools might be better for them than wi-fi.
