Tally-Ho, Smelly old chap –
Your “Modest Proposal”, while lacking the dramatic quality of the Jonathan Swift original, is one which I should be sure to adopt immediately upon being crowned – I mean, being elected Mayor. By the way, I’ve already had one applicant to be my schools Chancellor. I told him I’d try him out in the stables first, we’ll see how he stacks up to Klein in the manure shoveling department.
Believe it or not, I’m still typing this blog drivel myself. Hired a recent NY City high school graduate to be my secretary, but she couldn’t type a whit. Whenever I dictated to her, she kept asking me if this was going to be on the test. Then she took out a number 2 pencil and asked me where were the little bubbles to fill out. Curious, that! Now, I know Mikey and his lawyer friend Joel know what they’re doing, which is training the unwashed to be better and more high tech servants, so I have to think that this girl as a high school graduate is capable of doing my bidding.
I’ve got it now, by Jove! I must put all my dictation in the form of multiple choice tests. That’s what they’re training the students to do, they’ll do a bang-up job that way. Brilliant, Mikey! Brilliant, Joel! An educational policy worthy of a billionaire!
Cheerio till next time, old bean.
