Diane Ravitch's blog

Reader Michael Fiorillo writes in response to Carol Burris’s post about Gwen Ifill’s interview of Bill and Melinda Gates:

“They were careless people, Tom and Daisy – they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they made.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The Great Gatsby”
