I say, it’s delightful to see Bill Gates addressing one of those awful teacher unions. They’ve finally seen the light and decided to do as they’re told. Personally, I couldn’t be more delighted. It’s about time we placed regulations to get rid of that awful tenure thing. Clearly an employer should be able to fire whomever he wants, if not for the simple fact that it’s his money, but as a cost-cutting measure.
If teachers want raises for simply working longer than other teachers, fine, say I. As soon as they are up for a rise, we’ll discharge them, and seek eager urchins to take their places. After all, what do the rabble need to know when all is said and done? How to serve quietly and with a modicum of dignity. As that Jay Matthews chap says, they should work hard and be nice.
I’ve asked Muffy to provide and update, but sadly she and the poolboy joined a book club months ago, and have been studying most every night. I do hope they finish that blasted book soon. I’ve offered to read it myself, but they claim it’s an educational voyage of some sort, blast it all.
I shall try to provide regular updates. I predict a smashing summer for billionaires everywhere, and if you’re weary of paying the Dalton school, we shall be providing special programs for children of PLUs at the Smellington Academy. There is a lottery, of course, but if you are a PLU you’re certain to win it and save all that inconvenient tuition money. After all, why should you dip into your petty cash when we can just as easily bill the taxpayer?
Will be at the Hampton address beginning Wednesday if you wish to drop by. Only hope I can persuade Muffy to miss a meeting or two at that blasted book club.
