Marie Anelle and I were enthusing about this video earlier. It’s from this weekend’s Save Our Schools rally in Washington DC. Witness the fashionably shorn Matt Damon pwn both a reporter and a cameraman who try to insult teachers—all as his mother, a teacher, looks on proudly. As the daughter, sister, granddaughter and great-granddaughter of teachers, it makes me quiver with joy. Bonus kudos to Matt for being perhaps the only celebrity to correctly and effectively use the term “inherently paternalistic” in an off-the-cuff response.
