A Rainy Day

We Americans are not savers. We borrow, and spend, and then borrow some more, from the President, right down to folks like you and I. Thankfully, pioneers like Mayor Bloomberg are quite willing to set a good example for the rest of us.

Mayor Bloomberg is planning to just sit on his surplus, and save it. Randi Weingarten, UFT President, characterized his decision as "prudent."

It's a good thing NYC schools are not horrendously overcrowded. I'm glad all our teachers are absolutely first-rate. It's nice that we don't have the highest class-size in the state.

Because if we were laboring and learning under conditions like those, "prudent" is not precisely the first word that would come to my mind.
