For the record, the Affordable Care Act's online access is not run by the government. It was outsourced to a private vendor. Just sayin'
Point of history, Tom Danehy inherited the "Jeff Smith Curmudgeon Seat" at the Weekly. (Tom would be the first to say, "I'm not worthy," and anyone with even a bit of smart-ass in them greatly miss Jeff Smith). So, the style of the Danehy's column are understandable - he's there for a reason, we all read him.
If you want calm, balanced, well-developed opinion read the New York Times.
Now, as I understand it (and I understand to be anything less than cock-sure is not the usual style of forums such as these) that these enthusiastic students will be allowed admission, but have one year to prove that they can hack it at UHS.
Now, that caveat to admission could be argued as to it's positive or negative aspects, but I find it interesting that what I heard from TUSD was left out this op-ed. Has anyone else heard about this part of the alternative admission plans?
Hoffman paints with rather broad brush strokes - kinda like those liberal who say all Republicans are heartless old white people, which is not true because I know two who are not.
Hey, bslap -
"Excuse me, is my daughter in there?" You're kidding on this one.
You know, life isn't like the movies.
This story is obviously an iceberg, and what was reported was only the tip.
Yeah! You hit on a couple of important notes here, Tom.
When I was in high school, if my girl friend's father caught us parked in a car at 4 a.m. in the morning, I would expect to get my ass kicked. I hope TUSD does the right thing and forgives Bonn. Now mind you, I don't condone Bonn's actions. I understand them, though.
And while we're talking about TUSD, thanks for that story about the charter school screw up. I read the AZ Daily Star every day (you know the saying, Tom, the Irish will put up with a bad situation forever) and I don't remember hearing about this.
You can bet that if that had happened in TUSD, the AZ Star would have put it on the front page.
This might explain some of this behavior:
An NPR segment - Does more wealth effect our behavior?
And let's face it, have you ever seen someone driving a Hummer that wasn't a douche?
O.K., I did, once, back in 2006.
We, two of us, ate at Fleming's last week, for the first time. We had a good time, a great dinner, and a fine martini - for half the price of 5 Palms. Yes, it's a chain, but the local folks that work there sure are nice.
Gee, in looking down the list of reader comments and counting up the "likes" and "dislikes," there are many, many "likes," but it basically seems one person went down the list and tapped all the dislikes. Kay Sullivan must have been very busy last night.
