One of my YRUU kidlets goes to Sidwell Friends, a Quaker private school in Washington DC.

She told us the other day that the death of kidnapped Quaker pacifist Tom Fox in Iraq had been a big blow to her school and to the Quaker community. They'd made a point of praying for the people who had killed him.

I heart Quakers.

I heart Quakers, too. My mom grew up in Quaker schools and camps, and my wife went to a Quaker college, and several kids on my block when I was growing up went to Sidwell, and my grandparents spent their final years happily in a Quaker retirement community. The news of his death took a little wind out of me, I must admit.

Isn't Sidwell Friends where Chelsea Clinton went? This is an awful gossipy question, but is it very expensive or a relatively sane private school?
