Remember "I'm just a Bill" from School House Rock? Seems Bill has been having a few problems these days. There's a new kid in town. Meet Alec.
A new video updates a classic Schoolhouse Rock concept to explain the basics behind the American Legislative Exchange Council controversy.
“ALEC Rock,” produced by Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Mark Fiore and a number of advocacy groups including the Center for Media and

Enjoy your Cheerios and the new brand of "School House Rock" you will likely never see in school.
And some classic viewing for us Old School members.
