Two good government stories

I am–with I believe ample justification–critical of many of the actions and activities of governments. But here are two small rays of sunshine.

LA schools superintendent shakes up district“.

Doing what he thinks is right has put him in some unusual positions, such as siding with plaintiffs who successfully sued the district over closely protected teachers’ union tenets – seniority-based layoff policies and leaving out student test scores in teacher performance: evaluations.

I do hope Superintendent Deasy remembers an important rule: “Don’t let the b***ards get you down.”

Newer cars [in North Carolina] won’t need emissions inspections“.

Now get rid of the freakin’ “safety” inspections.
