It's another potential crisis in Boston, Marxachusetts, but, this time, there's no Aqua Teen pranksters to snicker at. This "emergency" will be caused by a teacher's strike, and Beantown has to prepare for the 58,000 students that won't have "free" daycare tomorrow.
The illegal action is going to cost Beantown's taxpayers bucks: "City and school officials detailed plans yesterday for Boston's community centers and public libraries to accommodate children of working parents by expanding their hours and bringing in additional staff. The city would pay about $400,000 for those accommodations, as well as providing breakfast and lunch to the children and stationing police in the areas of teacher protests and where out-of-school students might congregate."
Let me see if I got this right ... The government is financing the care and feeding and miseducation of other people's children, so government employees can break the law and suffer no consequences. Meanwhile the affected parents will breezily go along with the fiscal and familial madness.
Would the remaining outraged citizens - all 12 of you - please throw some tea bags into Boston Harbor on Thursday?
