Let me take this opportunity to say that I review the comments received by this blog for appropriateness and post nearly all of them, whether or not I agree with the sentiments expressed. The occasional comment crosses the line, however, and I reject it. For example, I received an anonymous comment today disagreeing with my concerns about the school budget cuts, including the removal of teachers and outsourcing of janitors. I have a fairly thick skin and expect some back and forth on the issues. But this person added a list of selected teachers and administrators and their salaries and suggested  that these individuals were undeserving of their pay and should be let go, etc, etc. I'm not going to post that sort of thing. For those few who push the limits, keep in mind that I cannot edit your comments, nor do I want to, so it is your obligation to maintain adequate decorum if you wish your comments to be published.
