The Chicago Teachers Union Strike is Prime Display of Arrogance & Greed

When you speak truth to power, the opponents reciprocate with cantankerous dialogue. Once they resort to “attack” mode, you can rest assured several buttons were pressed because you’ve struck a nerve. To quote George Takai: “ooooh myyy.” Oh my indeed.

Dear Chicago Public School Teachers, PART 2 (and it’s a Doozie)

There’s No Such Thing As “First Place.”

There are certain words and phrases being used in numerous contexts that has become largely antiquated and conjures false perceptions. In light of recent news with regard to Alex Trebek’s diagnosis, I wish he didn’t use the word “fight” in his brave confession to the public. I understand and respect why such terminology was necessary, … Continue reading There’s No Such Thing As “First Place.”
