I know that the dead don't give up their right to vote in New Jersey but isn't it a bit cruel to make them keep working? Perhaps this is a partial explanation of the parlous state of education in the US. I've always considered references to 'deadbeats' in the educational bureacracy to be a figure of speech.
I wonder what the parties are like when they finally retire?
Speaking of New Jersey - is there any sign of nest construction in preparation for the arrival of the '07 model of Ospring I?
