Steve Perry, who was once a commentator for CNN, recently spoke in Minneapolis and used the occasion to ridicule teachers and unions and boast of his own miraculous powers. He runs a school in Hartford where he performs miracles daily, unlike the millions of teachers who are not lucky enough to work in his school.

His contempt for everyone but himself may explain why he is no longer a regular at CNN.

How can you teach children to respect others if you set a bad example? How could society function if everyone was an egotistical bully?
