Al Scala Actually, i believe your response demonstrates your insecure nature. What purpose could you possiblly have had by offering the shining light of your fact (four principals in five years), other than to cast aspersion on the board? You can't help yourself. The article was a "feel good" story, about the hiring of two good people as new principals at Hills and Ryerson. All of the comments recognized this good news, until Kitty Kat's comment right before you chimed in. Guess you were waiting for someone with a similarly pissy outlook before weighing in with your very helpful and insightful fact. I don't waste my time denegrating the board on a blog. When I have an issue, I contact the superintendent, and the some or all of the board members. But you crap all over the board on this website, every chance you get. You can call what you do "criticism," but I think my label is more accurate. (And, since you are in the mood to correct my spelling, let me return the favor and correct your grammar. I believe what you actually meant to say is that I mistake your criticism for abject negativity. But that would be petty of me to do that, wouldn't it?)
