Easter Etc.

Advice to charter school teacher: Stop being part of the problem by working for these scams in the first place.

There is no reason for "charter" schools to exist. They need to be abolished by cutting off public funds.

Private schools should not be getting taxpayer dollars. Charter schools are in truth private schools in all but name.

Obituary: Boxer and famed wrongly-convicted murderer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, 76, has died after a bout with prostate cancer.

His case sounds like an early case of racial profiling. Certainly it was at the very least mistaken identity:

On the night of June 16 and the early morning of June 17, 1966, while his wife and their 2-year-old daughter, Theodora, were at home, Mr. Carter visited several bars in Paterson, winding up at one called the Night Spot.

A half-mile away, about 2:30 a.m., two black men entered the Lafayette Grill and killed two white men and a white woman in a barrage of shotgun and pistol blasts. The police immediately suspected that the shootings were in retaliation for the shotgun murder that night in Paterson of a black tavern owner by the former owner, who was white.

Mr. Carter had encountered John Artis, a casual acquaintance, that night and was giving him a lift home when they were stopped by the police. They said Mr. Carter’s leased white Dodge sedan resembled the murderers’ getaway car. Except for being black, neither Mr. Carter nor Mr. Artis matched the original descriptions of the killers. They were released after both passed lie detector tests and a patron who had been wounded in the Lafayette Grill failed to identify them. But they remained under suspicion.

His case was a cause celebre throughout the world.

The conviction was later overturned and he moved to Canada.

This isn't about Nevada PERS "solvency" but about creating division between private and public employees in an attempt to abolish public pensions.

Who in the fuck are you kidding, RGJ?
