If you're so anxious to part with your money, why not just give a little to me? I'd do more meaningful things with it than the State of California will.
It didn't get as deep at school as I thought it would today, but one particular email comment struck me as pretty gross. Yay, Californians voted to raise the state sales tax and to tax rich people more--and the extra money might go to schools and we might not have as many furlough days as was planned. One triumphant emailer claimed, "This is such good news for the students!"
Seriously? I'll just toss this comment out there in general: Does anyone really think this teacher is happy for the students? I don't.
