To 7:51PM ~~ If I get to use it in such measured soundbites as tonight's 2 seconds, I'll be able to change the world! lol

What a report. I don;t think the list they used is reflective of items that are needed/ requested for most. In my opinion the lists are longer, with more expensive items and specific items, not the cheapest available. They did use a list from the RCSD I think if they looked to suburban elementary lists they would have had a much different shopping outcome.

SCATS said...

To 11:48AM ~~ They kept changing around the report each time it was aired. In one of them, McGonigle did mention there were teachers requesting flash drives, headsets with mics and other more expensive techie stuff. But I agree that some of the lists I've seen coming out of Greece are quite elaborate AND lengthy.

Wow. First time in the press in all these years. Slow news day.

SCATS said...

To Mr. Happy Pants ~~ You've been keeping track that closely? lol

PS ~~ The first thing I thought when I read your chosen moniker was "School's opening and the pedophiles are out cruising again."

SCATS, why are you thinking about pedophiles? Hmmm.

Mr. Happy Pants said...

Don't be silly scats. Barry retired, and I can't play an instrument...so marching band is not an option.

SCATS said...

To 8:43AM ~~ Gotta keep the kids safe from their teachers, ya know?

To 9:56AM ~~ Thank goodness for that news!

How is it that you can call Barry a pedophile when he BEAT the charges? Yet, calling someone a Liar who needs meds is considered "namecalling"! What is wrong with you?

SCATS said...

To 4:40PM ~~ You're right. We should point out he's the "formerly alleged pedophile" that the DA wrongly persecuted. What's wrong with me? Well, I'm pretty sure you're not a doctor, even though you enjoy playing doctor.

Scats...I am sending you back to the 6th grade. Apparently you don't know the difference between PERSECUTED and PROSECUTED. Your homework assignment is to write the defintion of both words 10 times. For BONUS CREDIT you can give me the definition of CHARACTER!!

SCATS said...

To 5:57PM ~~ I'm well aware of the definitions and the difference. I used persecuted because ADA Doorley said the girl's story was so credible despite the jury's decision. For the definition of character please look in the mirror, because you certainly are one :) Thanks for the entertainment!

You failed your assignment again!!! You did not cite me the definitions. Go to the office for your spanking.

SCATS said...

To 9:18PM ~~ Re: "You did not cite me the definitions."

Your grammar is horrible!

Re: "Go to the office for your spanking."

Corporal punishment is archaic & illegal.

Besides, my parents will tell you I didn't do whatever it is you say that I did, just ask them ;)

You are right about that. My son got in trouble at school and the principal called me at work to tell me about the incident. I agreed with the principal that my son needed a consequence however I told the principal that the consequence that he wanted to give was too little. If he had to call me at work the consequence should be more. The principle was shocked when I said this and we have had conversations since then aboout parents not accepting responsibility for their children.

Your position is very commendable.

Question; was the principal calling to get you permission? I am trying to understand the reason for the call.
