Nothing's too good for these a--holes. Which ones, you may ask? Why, the ones belonging to our school board, which became a public laughingstock after a proposal to buy themselves francy ergonomic chairs with a $600 price tag. Following the suggestion of WEGR Rock 103 deejays, citizens began dropping off used chairs at the school board en masse, which didn't sit too well with some of the self-important stooges to whom we've committed the fates of our children. The Commercial Appeal quoted board member Wanda Halbert as saying, "You know, the community needs to decide what it wants from the school board....Anything we do is wrong." Well, at least she got that last point right.
