Today Is Good

The Governator got slapped* and Joss Whedon is on Veronica Mars tonight.

* Actually, 74 and 75 were too close if you ask me. Organized labor needs to improve its image and continue to look for support and favor with voters. There should be no question about whether or not workers should have financial access to politics and policy making. There should be no doubt that 5 years is an unfair tenure period for teachers in our public schools who get paid too little to work under stressful conditions and in the face of the specific California challenges of poverty and large immigrant populations. Also, I'm worried that people won't smear Schwarzenegger's name enough to satisfy my needs. At the time of this posting, the materials online at Los Angeles Times and Huffington Post are just reporting in terms votes for and against. I want more press on how the Governator's grab was too expensive or stories that predict his future impotency.

yeah, the sf chronicle kinda makes it sound like there was a smear campaign against the gubernator: "The anti-Schwarzenegger coalition was a vast, sophisticated political machine that played on public sympathies." that doesn't sound like a compliment to me.

If the so-called "anti-Schwarzeneggar" coalition was indeed a vast and sophisticaed political machine those numbers wouldn't be so damn close! Wish that it (we) were. Vast and sophisticated, that is.

And did anyone check out Orange, Riverside, San Bern, and Ventura county numbers? Very depressing!

I am not sure where they get this tenure thing for teachers. I've only heard of tenure for college professors. Every other year, teachers get Stulled (evaluated by the administrator). They also quit giving life credentials sometime in the 1970's and teachers must renew their credentials every five years. I am okay with them getting rid of bad teachers but the example they gave on that tv ad about a teacher that showed an R-rated movie is just lame. The afterschool teacher at my school got in trouble for showing "Stand By Me" because of the cussing. I sat next to a family with a bunch of kids in a theater showing Scary Movie 2 and that's way worse. I mean the sex and violence scenes, not the fact that we all paid to see Scary Movie 2.
