American schools, according to Kozol,
is that they "indoctrinate" children,
first by not allowing them to use the fir-

ALTHOUGH KOZOL was speaking
on a serious subject, he often told ram-

Is it crazy to love marker pens that give you the smoothest, thinnest line in
town...and feel so right in your hand? Is it mad to worship pens with clever
little metal "collars" to keep their plastic points from getting squishy?
Not if the pen is a Pilot marker pen.
Our Razor Point, at only 690, gives
the kind of extra-fine delicate line you'll flip ;:
over And for those times you want a little less
line, have a fiing with our fine point
