What about school superintendents'? Up until this time school boards have had the notion that in order to hire the "best and brightest" they had to constantly increase superintendents' salaries. I recently read that Southington's superintendent refused a raise which was commendable. What shocked me was that the school board was miffed that he did so! In this case, the superintendent showed common sense, something I DO NOT equate with the education system, and the school board showed stupidity!

I believe that by law, government is immune from reality.

big kudos to Zygo for doing the RIGHT thing in this recession. wish my ex-employer thought the same way. 2nd day of 2009, 14 yrs. meant nothing to them. guess training new unskilled worker is cheaper than retaining loyal skilled problem-solver. now i will have to master the precision of folding that paper-wrapper around a hamburger for minimum wage. bye-bye house, hello comfy back-seat of car.
