commented on Interim Seattle Public Schools Superintendent Named
@5 - the School Board gets about $4600....a year for their service. Some even turn it down. They are NOT overpaid or clowns.
Do we need a superintendent? Probably but what Seattle Schools needs less of is administrators at headquarters and more resources in our schools. They give out raises to top administrators like candy while schools have to struggle to keep a school secretary.

2) you, too, will be old someday
3) buy a can of Lysol and leave it in the bathroom

Dear Hobart and William Smith Colleges,
I write a public education blog. Understand that those of us who write about education, both elementary/secondary/higher, WILL write about this and warn our readers about how little you care about your students. This investigation? Bullshit. Your concern? Bullshit.
commented on Frustrated By KUOW?
I have no idea what I'll hear when I turn on KUOW. They are just all over the place. I miss listeners calling in and I miss the loss of more in-depth local stories.
Last week they had two stories, same day, nearly following each other on Mormons. Why? Oh, no real reason, just like most of the programming.
And I hate the "in 5 minutes this story" updates.

"rural rock '73-/74-style update" - great description. Rural rock, who knew that's what we were listening to back then. But it is interesting how some songs from the seventies are completely unlike anything today.
