Madd props to Tyler Green, who pointed out on his blog that Grace Glueck was blatantly violating New York Times policy by residing on the board of the Clark. In response, Glueck resigned, and confirmed to the world that she was up to her neck in conflict by shrieking insults at Tyler as the door hit her where the Good Lord split her. One, two, three.
Hugs and condolences to Tamara Hoover, who was recently escorted out of the Austin high school art class she was teaching and told she had become an ineffective teacher. What necessitated her immediate removal from school premises? Administrators were made aware of her Flickr photosets, which contained images of - maybe you'd better sit down - her boobies. Here's what I think is obscene: Texan school officials going after gays in the name of "higher moral standards." (CNN reports that the photos were posted by "her partner.") A statewide adult illiteracy rate of 12.3%. Capital punishment. Alcohol abuse. Are boobies on that list? No, boobies are not on that list. Did I see pictures of boobies when I was in high school? Yes, I did. Did I turn out okay? Well, I came out smart enough not to want to put any future kids into the Texas public school system.
