Whew the heat wave is over

I just about melted from the heat and like a good parent I sent my children to roast in school. I don't get why school districts in Philadelphia, New Jersey and other states sent their precious cargo (students) home, but here in the wilted Apple our children are not considered. Joel were you baking in a school?
When I picked wee one up yesterday his face was as red as his shirt. I know I could have kept him home but I work right around corner from his school so I can just run over there to get him if needed.
It does not surprise me one bit that schools were open it is all about the money, can you make it any more obvious.
I have a new ass hat meter for bonehead moves by the DOE.
This one gets 4 out of 5 ass hats.

There are guidelines that protect the Central Park carriage horses from working in the heat, but nothing to protect the kids. Bloomberg had the nerve to say in an interview that the kids need more instructional time, not less, and that they're "wimps".

I wonder how much of his decision was a slap in the face to the teachers, because it certainly had nothing to do with "Children First".

As long as the AC works in Tweed, everything is fine. When Mayor Bloomberg was a kid he walked 20 miles to the school in 20 feet of snow, even in summer, uphill both ways, and he was happy about it...
