And, I used to like Andre Agassi

I just spotted a small piece in the latest Time magazine (Nov. 22, 2010) in which Andre Agassi, former tennis champ, and all-around bon vivant, was asked to suggest a “Person of the Year” for this year’s award by Time–you know–where the winner is on the magazine’s front cover. Here is what Agassi has to say:

“My nominee is: the American student. I deserve better. Far better. I need my teachers to be better trained and held accountable for their performance. I want you to expect excellence from me. My future is at stake, and I’m not equipped for a 21st century world. If you all lay aside your agendas, you can create a groundswell that will lift me into college and beyond. If only there were a children’s union.” 

YIKES.  BTW: he is retired from tennis (and quite wealthy, with a new book out) and is the founder of the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy.
