I'm 64 and don't have any kids in school anymore, so I haven't followed the Common Core concept & its implementation. However, my Grandmother taught me that if you're going to change something, make sure you improve it; otherwise leave it alone. So, where's the big improvement?

I say leave these radicals to Assad's army to deal with......let them fight it out. Then, if IS wins and establishes an Islamic caliphate, let the UN enforce TOTAL isolation from the civilized world and let them survive by drinking oil.

As a recently retired state worker I can assure you that more of this will continue because the present governor has effectively "frozen" most hiring. Which means when a staff member retires, dies, or leaves state service for another job, he/she is not allowed to be replaced, and the staff remaining get to do that person's work......often meaning overtime.

What a shame. New Orleans never had a stronger, better advocate than Mr. Nagin. So what if he skimmed some money here & there.......ALL politicians do that. George W. Bush on the other hand couldn't (& didn't) care that the citizens of New Orleans were drowning during Katrina....he was too obsessed with Iraq and its petrodollars.
