A former public school superintendent received an incredible separation package of over $301,000 for each year of service in her three years of work for the City of Philadelphia. While this is not the only local school board financial issue of its kind, this situation clearly illustrates the need for school reform.
I believe that management of local school boards and budgetary oversight needs to be taken back from the folks who have made such poor decisions. School districts should be required to maintain at least one non-educational position dedicated to providing budgetary guidance.
Almost forgot, she is receiving monthly unemployment benefits of over $1,000.
A former Philadelphia school district superintendent who collected a $905,000 contract buyout from the city has reportedly filed for unemployment benefits.
Arlene Ackerman was reportedly paid the hefty buyout by the school district with taxpayer funds after a plan to use $405,000 in private funds to pay her was cancelled amid public outrage.

We posted earlier about a fake, transsexual doctor with ginormous hips who allegedly injected cement, fix-a-flat, super glue and mineral oil into women who desired cheap plastic surgery procedures. Now, a new victim has come forward and it is not pretty. Read on.

Woman reveals horrific damage to her face after it was injected with cement and tyre sealant by ‘butt implant doctor’
By Chris Murphy and Tamara Abraham
An alleged victim of ‘fake doctor’ Oneal Ron Morris has come forward to show the horrific state of her face after it was injected with a toxic mixture of cement and tyre sealant.
Rajee Narinesingh, 48, from Miami, Florida, says her face was ruined by Morris, who had just been released from custody after she was accused of administering the potentially lethal shots to another victim.
Ms Narinesingh, who, like Morris, 30, was born a man, but lives as a woman, said she suffered acutely lumpy cheeks, misshapen chin and ballooning upper lip after the back room beauty treatment.
She admitted that she initially turned to Morris because she did not have the money to pay a licensed plastic surgeon. She says she learned of him by word-of-mouth in the transsexual community.
I’ll say it again, I will not buy a thing from Sears as long as they sell this beast’s stuff.

The honeymoon period really didn’t last long for Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries.
The warring couple were seen coming to blows last night during the season premiere of Kourtney & Kim Take New York aired on U.S. television, which was watched by 3.2m viewers, up from the first season’s figure of 3m.
After mounting tensions, Kris ends up moving out of their New York hotel – and bizarrely it is a naked male yoga instructor who proves to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

Less than a week ago, I was bold enough to declare my support for Newt Gingrich. I am pleased to see that The Union Leader, New Hampshire’s largest print media, provides Gingrich with their front page editorial endorsement.

From New Hampshire’s Union Leader Editorial:
This newspaper endorses Newt Gingrich in the New Hampshire Presidential Primary.
America is at a crucial crossroads. It is not going to be enough to merely replace Barack Obama next year. We are in critical need of the innovative, forward-looking strategy and positive leadership that Gingrich has shown he is capable of providing.

A picture book of biblical story scenes created entirely from Lego building blocks has been pulled from Sam’s Club after customer complaints about its violent and offensive pictures.
From Vision To America
After fielding complaints from parents about its “mature” content, the Wal-Mart-owned retailer Sam’s Club has pulled a reported 10,000 copies of a “Bible” off its shelves that uses plastic LEGO blocks to depict Old Testament scenes.
Brendan Smith, creator of the LEGO scenes and author of “The Brick Bible,” reported earlier this week the Sam’s Club decision.
“I have just been informed that Sam’s Club is pulling ‘The Brick Bible’ from the shelves of all of their retail locations nationwide due to the complaints of a handful of people that it is vulgar and violent,” Smith reported on his Facebook page. “This despite the book containing only straightforward illustrations of Bible stories using direct quotes from Scripture.”
Sam’s Club explained: “After selling this specific version online and in several club locations, we received numerous concerns from members and parents about the mature content for a perceived children’s book. Sam’s Club made a business decision to discontinue sales of ‘The Brick Bible.’”

Here’s a little sample for ya (from The Brick Testament):
Genesis 17:25 Ishmael was 13 years old when the flesh of his foreskin was cut off.
Genesis 7:11-12 The windows of heaven were opened and rain fell on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights.
Genesis 19:5 They called to Lot, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so we can have sex with them!’
I am not sure why this newsworthy, but apparently it is.
Here’s the link to the story at the New York Post, if you want to read it.
“Solidarity Park?” LOL! And they are having a pizza party for the police afterwards. From their Facebook page:
