"the" Mrs. Astor

This is the Miami school board; in a saner part of the country they'd be working the full length of their abilities such as a counter person at Dunkin Donuts. They just found out that they are a quarter of a billion dollars short of balancing the budget, as mandated by law. There mustn't have been a dry eye in the house as they met all week point fingers, pass the blame, and slash what they could. Teacher assistants, office workers, and physical education instructors had to take the first hit and bus drivers were about to take the next when one of the board members realized that there would be no one to drive the buses; set aside for now.
This is the Superintendent of Miami schools, Rudy Crew; he makes a half million a year. Despite calls from his resignation (assuming that he should know what he spends and whats coming in), he's sitting tight and ordering another taco. The school board members took a stand, too, on Wednesday; they voted not to reduce their salaries and instead approved a motion to raise the cost of a school lunch by fifty cents.

Every day I awake, I count it as one more before Miami is taken over by outside forces and away from the hands of these idiots and thieves

Once again, it smacks of Broward County. Our esteemed commissioners must cut $82 million from the 2008-2009 county budget. In a budget workshop held this past Tuesday, they entered into a world of hurt attempting to justify why a percentage of their many aides and assistants should not be laid off or take pay cuts, just like the rest of the county. You can imagine the discussion. Talk about nonsensical political double speak.....

The school board should be rounded up in a town square and bayonetted to death. Rudy should be roasted in a pit with pineapple.
