    Israel-bashing figures prominently in 'teach-ins' where San Franciscans seek a flavor of the Vietnam era Let's admit it - San Francisco is gorgeous, and deserves its name as the capital of resistance to what the US is trying to do in the Middle East.

From New England to California schools are named after him (and an insurance company.) If his influence is not debatable, the basis for the praise is. History is written by the winners and most of the compliments come from public educators who, of course, benefit from his efforts. In addition there is the sheer repetition of favorable comments. As Mann himself once said, "If an idiot were to tell you the same story for a year, you would end by believing it."...
