"In fact, CRPE operates in a manner that is strikingly similar to ALEC (the American Legislative Exchange Council), the secretive, powerful group funded by the Koch brothers and a large roster of corporations. Here’s a look at how the two organizations work: 

Member networks: Both CRPE and ALEC have a “secret club” component, through their member networks. With ALEC, the members are state legislators. With CRPE, they are school districts from across the United States (there are currently thirty-nine of them).

Requests for the photo of an eagle on a gravestone at Fort Snelling National Cemetery, and use of the story, have come from the Department of Veterans Affairs, military publications and Arlington National Cemetery.

We use words to tell stories, but words often have their own stories behind them that can be just as interesting as anything we can come up with. Today, we want to know about the word with the best story behind it.
