You have to almost love the way Memphis sullies a strong word like "Unified".
I don't know whether to cry or laugh.
@ mad merc,
I've lived in many parts of this country too, and after reading your posts, I'm getting this sinking feeling that you may have watched too many Shirley Temple movies.
But I could be wrong about the movies...
Good to hear, AP. It is about time.
Thank you for the adjective "erstwhile". Was it intended for the Memphis City School Board AND the Shelby County School Board? Hopefully, solely, the former. Although, perhaps, the SCS Board has become "erstwhile". That sort of loss of direction tends to happen when you're ramrodded.
Check out the morale in the SCS. It is getting a little too close to the walking dead. Although the hostile takeover of SCS was, initially, a blatant money/ power grab, now, frosting on the cake, we even get educators working in a daze of disillusionment, powerless to fight back in an attempt to retain their convictions.
Oh well. That's what happens when Big, Bad Bully Memphis is the flunky puppeteer desperately trying to manipulate their knotted strings.
Thank you, Governor!
Deadline for the erection of OTP's lighthouse is August 2014. We don't want his dreams to "become shipwrecked on the rocks of reality".
I'll get a shovel.
Clarion, could you adjust the lighthouse beams towards the planet Uranus?
Does Ritz spend each night holed up in an expansive East Memphis clothes closet playing dice all night?
