Precious moments in education

Facing a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge, South Haven High School’s assistant principal, Pat Conroy, resigned Friday, Schools Superintendent Dave Myers said.


In his police report, South Haven Deputy Police Chief Tom Martin said Conroy told him that last year he placed some of the marijuana from his office in the locker of a male high school student he strongly suspected was a drug dealer. He said he was hoping the drugs would be found during a police dog search of the school and would lead to the boy’s expulsion.

I suppose he confessed because he didn’t see why it was wrong.

North America explained

I have finally come to the conclusion that it’s not your [Canada’s] and Mexico’s fault the way you turned out, after all, you’ve been ruled by France!

How long before society rejects this kind of thinking?

U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown verbally attacked a top Bush administration official during a briefing on the Haiti crisis Wednesday, calling the President’s policy on the beleaguered nation “racist” and his representatives “a bunch of white men.”

Her outburst was directed at Assistant Secretary of State Roger Noriega during a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill. Noriega, a Mexican-American, is the State Department’s top official for Latin America.


Noriega later told Brown: “As a Mexican-American, I deeply resent being called a racist and branded a white man,” according to three participants.

Brown then told him “you all look alike to me,” the participants said.

Any guesses as to whether this will simply disappear? I doubt we’ll see any castigation of Brown by the Democratic Party. What can they do? This is natural result of the grievance nuturing stance of that party. To repudiate Brown would be to repudiate a primary platform of the party.
