You Think YOU Have it Bad?

In an effort to avoid a Detroit-like situation in this Southern town - the state of Texas has taken over our local school district.
I guess the days of millions of dollars in undeserved bonuses to under qualified employees are coming to an end.
Sure, I am friends with most of the people responsible for squandering almost $400 million dollars on personal goods - but I am more than pleased to see another (less ghetto-fabulous) group of friends taking over before my small town goes the way of MoTown.

Yeah, Craig. But you live in an actual city. The former superintendent of this small town had an annual base salary of $334,000. For a town this small it came out to $17.31 per student - five times the average for much larger municipalities in Texas. Believe me, Big Don would have a huge following should he move to Beaumont and write op-eds about out local Black politicians.
