I received two e-mails very early this morning that Dr. Evil Briscoe, Superintendent of Schools for District 428, has ordered all the school principals not to show President Obama’s speech to schoolchildren tomorrow morning.

However, according to recorded school auto-calls placed to district families a bit after 10 a.m., the speech will be shown throughout the district but any children wishing to opt out of watching the speech may do so without penalty. Was a decision reversed in the face of public displeasure, or is this a correction to a rumor run wild? You decide. I have to go check the President’s Labor Day remarks for socialistic propaganda inspiration. [/snark]
