USPSA - Obama’s Peace Corps?

The the U.S. Public Service Academy [USPSA] has found a new home for communication on Things seem to be happening very fast right now for Chris Myers Asch who, according to a January 6th article in the NY Times, "with no money, contacts or obvious qualifications, [..] quit his job three years ago at a Mississippi after-school program and started a campaign to create a civilian service academy — a West Point for bureaucrats."

Looks like a commitment with a whole lot of belief behind it...and support and/or endorsements from public figures such as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden.
