GOLDSBORO, N.C. – A middle school in North Carolina is selling test scores to students in a bid to raise money.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Wednesday that a parent advisory council at Rosewood Middle School in Goldsboro come up with the fundraising plan after last year’s chocolate sale flopped.

The school will sell 20 test points to students for $20…

Crazy.  Why would any educator want to teach their students that throwing money at a problem is an acceptable path to a solution?  If that’s the direction we are taking, then why send the kids to school at all?  I could save myself hundreds of thousands of dollars just by buying each of my kids a Postdoctoral Degree online.


Sex Army Invasion

The UK Government is preparing to repel an invasion by an army of prostitutes, which it believes is likely to descend on the Olympic Games in 2012.

On Monday, Labour MP Fiona McTaggart asked Tessa Jowell, Minister for the Olympics whether she had commissioned any research on the effect of increased visitor numbers for the London 2012 Olympics on demand for the sex industry.

"When the World Cup was held in Germany in 2006, the Germans organised the trafficking of 40,000 extra prostitutes into Germany to serve the clients, as they put it, who came to the World Cup and, in the midst of either jubilation or dismay at their teams’ performances, felt that they should go and buy sex with some girl brought in from Czechoslovakia, Latvia or Lithuania".

A new Axis Powers invasion?  I’m not so sure the Brits will be willing to resist this time.

DC Sniper – Dead and Violated

Jarratt, Virginia (CNN) — Justice fell short with the execution of Washington-area sniper John Allen Muhammad, one of his victims’ survivors said after witnessing his death by lethal injection.

Muhammad died silently Tuesday night in a Virginia prison death chamber filled with lawyers, lawmen and his victims’ survivors.

The people rejoiced.

Next up, Nidal Malik Hasan.  We hoped for firing squad or hanging.  Unfortunately the military death penalty has moved to lethal injection as the official method of execution.
