June 30th, 2009 · 1 Comment

In light of recent (major) budget and personnel cuts within Jefferson County Public Schools, we thought it’d be prudent to let our readers know about a rumor (dozens have spammed us with it – many individuals were entirely credible) that Superintendent Sheldon Berman is having his office renovated.

Your Monday Dept of Regular Political Hypocrisy
