    The latest of the boneheaded comments coming out of Newton.Next he'll probably say that moving pictures aren't really necessary for television — you could do just as well with sound plus a still photograph.And that they don't really need printing presses when a couple of calligraphers with quill pens and inkpads would do just as well.Oh, and the obvious question: how much of the (nearly) $200 million hardware is actually "not essential" for educating tomorrow's high school students? Answer: probably a significant portion of the steel and concrete that would be visible in the pictures that the TAB's photographer would've taken.
