Texas high school disses Al Jazeera journalist: Gabriel Elizondo, above, attempted to interview people at a football game at Booker High School in Booker, Texas, only to get the cold shoulder from an administrator because his business card said “Al Jazeera” on it. This one, in fact. He was doing a fairly straightforward ten-years-later piece on 9/11’s impact on U.S. culture. Guess Gabe has a pretty good answer for how our culture’s changed. (thanks to William Stilwell for the tip)

Utterly depressing, but a must-read.
