A Civics Lesson To Remember

It doesn’t get any better than this.

NORWALK, Ohio (AP) — A state legislator surprised a high school class when the computer he was using projected a photo of a nude woman during a lecture on how a bill becomes a law.

State Rep. Matthew Barrett was giving a civics lesson Tuesday when he inserted a data memory stick into the school computer and the projected image of a topless woman appeared instead of the graphics presentation he had downloaded.


The legislator said he finished his lecture using printouts and then met with the school’s principal and technology staff, who examined the stick. He said the school’s technology director determined the stick had a directory of nude images in addition to Barrett’s presentation on civics lessons.

“I have no idea where these came from,” the Democrat said.

Barrett said the data memory stick was a gift he received about three weeks ago from a legislative liaison from the state Library of Ohio.

So how come my civics classes were never this exciting? It has been quite a while since I was in high school, but I certainly don’t remember any T&A during the lectures. Still, a nude woman probably has a lot more to do with how our laws are passed than any of the BS I had shoveled down my throat those many years ago. Kudos to you, Rep. Barrett for keeping it real. Now let’s see if your weak excuse that you “have no idea where these came from” holds up.
