When I See an Elephant Fly

While kids in my school are rolled in like sardines, New York City has taken 110 Livingston Street, the former headquarters of the Board of Education, and turned it into condos. To make space for these condos, Mayor Mike is sending us an extra 200 kids next year. Thanks Mayor Mike! Your devotion to these kids is the stuff of legend.

With 75% of the city's high schools overcrowded, I'd have thought it might be sensible to use a building like this to relieve it. But Mayor Mike can still find first-class homes for charters run by billionaires, so it's no biggie.

The project is aptly named DUMBO, a fitting description for anyone who still believes public schools are a priority for this mayor.

Thanks to Norm.
