It is being said that having been forced to work together on the school budget, The EBOE members walked in on the city council as councilman Cuesta was telling a lawyer joke. They all laughed. In keeping with their rivalry, and not to be outdone, Fajardo came out with one about a blonde and a lawyer. Then Keenan told one about a couple of New Jersey hunters. Munn told one about a dentist, a nurse, an an army general. They were rolling on the floor laughing… but Pastor Burgos and Pastor Cedeño were not amused. Burgos scolded the members, and Cedeño followed up saying that this was not what they had met to discuss. Cedeño said that they should work together for the good of the children, the schools, and the city! Burgos started saying that they should be more Christ-like and not let issues of money and power cloud their judgment. All in attendance agreed and they worked out a budget that had minimal impact on the operation of the schools, and only raised taxes by 50 dollars a year! Then Jackus told the board members that it was ok to be Republican, that they didn’t have to hide it anymore! They agreed to resolve their differences for the good of the city! The pastors closed out the meeting with a prayer, and had all present shake hands and say “Peace be with you”! Then they all held hands and sang “Kumbaya”! The dark cloud of doom cleared overhead… no, not the exhaust and refinery one… the other one! The light in the room intensified! Then they all went out and had a beer!
Bollwage called Booker in disbelief, and told him about it. Booker asked if they could schedule a meeting between them and the leaders of the Bloods and the Crips to get them to stop the violence. Amazed, Lesniak asked if the group would address the Senate and Congress to discuss the divisions between Democrats and Republicans. Getting wind of this, Obama asked Hillary if she would accompany them as a delegation to the Middle East to moderate between the Israelis and the Arabs!
Imagine that! To think it all started as a joke between a couple of Cubans…
Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep… Damn alarm clock. I’m gonna burn it one of these days… Don’t wake a democratic dragon from its dreams, they’re very cranky creatures.
