Leadership void shines through
The Luna law debate was interesting. Tom Lunas lips kept moving, but all I heard was blah, blah, blah. It is deja-moo, you know, the same old bull. Brian Cronin was articulate in his honest and thorough rebuttal.
Luna wanted to move Idaho students into the 21st century. Theyre already there. Hes the only one missing. The whole state was disrupted by this nonsense. Idahoans expect to get screwed now and then, but Luna, Gov. Butch Otter and Scott Bedke seem to think were a bunch of nymphomaniacs. We should replace them with computers and let teachers teach.
Poor management is the root cause of most business failures. Luna manages Idahos education business and hes done a terrible job. His chairmanship puts politics, power and money first. Students and teachers get thrown under the bus.
The worried vote yes group bombarded us with untruthful TV ads and mailers and its no surprise that vote no yard signs were disappearing. Never underestimate those running second in a two-horse race.
Tom, if you hurry, you can find an online website that will help you prepare your next resume before H-P repossesses your computer.

Voters outsmart Luna
Well, as it turns out the Idaho voters arent as dumb as Tom Luna and his cronies once thought. In his article on Nov. 8 on the Idaho education propositions, the Statesmans Kevin Richert stated the results well! But what he didnt say is we have a disfunctional state school superintendent and the only reason he has the job is he had an R in front of his name. Lets face it folks, this guy is totally unqualified for the job and if he had any integrity he would submit his resignation (which he wont). If he were in the private sector he would have been fired a long time ago.
We cannot afford two more years of lunacy in our education system. Time to get the recall going. And maybe this is a wakeup call for the Idaho electorate as he isnt the only incompetent we have among our elected officials.

Idaho voters set example for Utah
Thank you, sister Idaho, for voting no on propositions 1 and 2. I foresee the Utah legislature attempting to push through similar legislation in Utahs future. Thank you for showing your Legislature, and us in Utah, that the principles of democracy work. I hope you will follow up this overwhelming response and deal with the legislators that did not heed the voice of their constituency. Idaho voters and teachers rock!
