    (Another in an on going series of "I surround myself with the best people".)

    During his address to the Republican National Convention on Tuesday night, Donald Trump Jr. remarked, "Our schools used to be an elevator to the middle class. Now they are stalled on the ground floor."

    "They're like Soviet-era department stores that are run for the benefit of the clerks and not the customers," Trump Jr. said.

    Here's what F.H. Buckley wrote in the American Conservative back in May:

    "What should be an elevator to the upper class is stalled on the ground floor. Part of the fault for this may be laid at the feet of the system's entrenched interests: the teachers' unions and the higher-education professoriate," Buckley wrote in that article. "Our schools and universities are like the old Soviet department stores whose mission was to serve the interests of the sales clerks and not the customers."

    Hang on. There is a report on Twitter that F.H. Buckley might have helped Trump Jr. with the speech. Waiting for more info.
