Oh, come on. Not the resignations, but once again, the lack of an editor/proofreader.

Mike? Really. You don't need to be in 'the biz" to know it should be mic.

After battling our local schools for years, this surprises me not.

Ended up with a private school. Much happier, way less stress.

I couldn't let it go and "not see" that.

I sent off a comment to the newspaper asking if they
hire journalists, or amateur bloggers.

You should ask them about their copy editors, not the journalists.

Uncaring and insensitive though they were, $1 says the "baby-sitters" comment was likely spot-on.

Where I live we have the opposite problem of not having board members with any interest whatsoever in why parents may want their kids kept home and reliably safe.

So there's obviously a balance that needs to be met, hopefully with education coming first and whatever-parents-may-want-this-week a distant second.

Harder to do than it seems, in cases where both the board and parents being unqualified to know what's best for kids.

When I homeschooled my son I was always amazed by conventional school parents I overheard at parks who couldn't wait for school to start up again because they found it annoying to have their kids around.

Yes, that was a great commercial.

I also like the Alice Cooper featured one.

When they canceled school last year 3rd week of March, parents on the school district's FB page about lost their minds. And then for this school year the board blocked the homeschooled kids from sports, because living out in isolation we'd somehow be more likely to infect others! Just bizarre "logic."

Oakley is kind of an odd area. A mix of farm land, people fleeing urban areas, and real estate speculators.

Oh puh-leeze.

'mike' was used as a short form for microphone for many years before it became 'mic'.

So the convention has changed over time, but it hardly merits the faux outrage shown here.

But 'hot Mike' would have been pretty comical.


I needed this today. Haven't been called hot mike in a long time.

The best freakin' post in the entire thread!





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I get it. They're just not honest. They want a break. Who cares who dies.

That's an awesome commercial!

We love our kids, but they were absolutely better off in our view going to a good learning environment where social skills were also developed.

Even with my wife is a professional teacher, we have good public schools - we did home-schooling at night and weekends, the day was for professional educators.

And the 'hot mike' comment made me laugh, bad journalism or no!
