We have such an anti-social enviroment now with a large population on mood drugs yet they post their most personal crap on line for all to see. Very strange indeed!

It figures the bible thumping hypocrites that over populate the area would over react to this woman's post on the internet a year ago. Its great to see the real truth come out and just like Jessie Jackson on the extreme left who will never apologize to The Duke Lacrosse team for ruining their lives, I would expect the same from the bible thumping billie rednecks of Akron.

Great job Bob!

Maybe her postings are what got her the job in the Akron Schools. Most young teachers have to sub for a couple of years before being hired full-time.

I find it curious that a person whose judgment was called into question in Kent for putting her personal life into the public arena via the internet would chose to do so again by talking to
Mr. Dyer. I would think that one of the lesson learned from previous experience would be to keep that which is private private. I recall that Georg Hegel, the late 18th and early 19th century German philosopher said words to this effect, "One lesson history teaches is that no one learns from history." Ms.
Cairn demonstrates Hegel's point by example.

Nice to see the folks at Garfield(or maybe at the school board itself----what a miracle, some intelligent thinking by a school board!) don't have the Middle Ages attitude of those in Kent.

Point of fact, a 'blunt' does not refer to a 'joint'.

A 'blunt' refers to the hollow shell of any cheap cigar: discard the crappy tobacco and stuff the shell with cannabis.

Note to all:

Most younger folks you encounter buying these large cigars at the local Citgo are buying them for this purpose.

I would not post personal information and pictures. Posting a opinion is not the same as a picture of me doing something that can bite me in the butt later. Totally not the same thing.

Not strange...crazy, stupid, irresponsible, these describe her actions well. I would have had her teaching license.

What a bunch of over-sensitive and judgemental hypocrites! This teacher has done NOTHING wrong!...If that's the worst thing she's done as a teacher, then not only should she NOT be fired, she should be given a RAISE!!
(Plus, I think she is incredibly HOT!!)

The Queen of mood.

This was long overdue!
They should publish this for all elected officials
What a waste of Tax Payer's money!

Well, looks like the old broad of the House will have to pay her own way
back and forth to California (mexifornia). The Air Force took her jet away
from her. Read the article below.

(verifiedby Snopes)

The real reason that Nancy Pelosi is considering retiring is that they
took her Jet away.
Ah, poor baby!

As a result of a Judicial Watch filing under the Freedom of Information
Act, the USAF released documents detailing House Speaker Pelosi's use of
United States Air Force aircraft between March 2009 and June 2010. The data are
published in the Judicial Watch Verdict of December 2010, Volume 16,
Issue 12.

Here are the main highlights revealed by the USAF. Keep in mind that all
the data below relate to United States Air Force aircraft used by one woman
over a sixteen month period.

Several of these flights included Ms. Pelosi's guests, such as grown
children, grandchildren, various in-laws, friends and hangers-on. Over 95% of
the trips were between the west coast and Washington DC , for what you
might call a commute between home and the office. READ it and WEEP!!

Total trips: 85 over a 68 week period, or 1.25 average trips per week.
Total mileage: 206,264 miles, or 2,427 average miles per trip.
flying time: 428.6 hours, or an average of 5 hours per trip.
Cost to the taxpayers:$2,100,744, or $27,715 per trip, or $1,285,162 per

Cost of in flight food and alcohol:$101,429; $1,193 per trip; $62,051 per year.

On one junket to Baghdad, according to the Air Force report, she had the

aircraft bar stocked with Johnny Walker Red Scotch, Grey Goose Vodka, E&J
Brandy, Bailey's Irish Cream, Maker's Mark Whiskey, Courvoisier Cognac,
Bacardi Rum, Jim Beam Whiskey, Beefeater Gin, Dewar's Scotch, Bombay Sapphire
Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey, Corona Beer and several varieties of wine. This
was obviously a very important "gubment bidness" trip.

Evidence generally speaks for itself, and in Ms. Pelosi's case it speaks
the language of abuse and (evidently) a serious familial drinking problem,
for in a single year she and her spawn drank an amount in excess of the net
income of the average employed American! When she said, "... If the
stimulus doesn't pass, five hundred million people might lose their jobs...", I
thought she was unintentionally revealing her ignorance. I'm now more
inclined to think she was pickled.

Even though she can no longer abuse the USAF, she can either fly
on her
broom, or fly Southwest Airlines, where bags fly free.

If you are an AMERICAN citizen it is YOUR DUTY to PASS THIS ON!!
Because, you won't see this reported on MSNBC.
