I'm Telling You

Having spent a lot of time in the past couple of years in the presence of some mighty fine middle school teachers, I've come to the conclusion that they should run the world. Because really, what does international politics resemble so much as the dysfunctional squabbles of a bunch of fraught pre-teens? I'm telling you, get a serious-business veteran teacher in there and those nations will be stacking up their nukes and quietly collaborating at their workstations in no time. Forget the baroque negotiations and strategic shenanigans. He/she will just deploy The Look—you know the one, the "You better get your business together or else..." look—and all those heads of state will be yes-sirring/ma'aming. I'm telling you...
