Just When You Thought...

...that teachers were smart enough to learn from the mistakes of others:
  • A 25-year-old high school Spanish teacher in Texas faces up to 20 years in jail for allegedly having sex with an 18-year-old student. Story here.
  • A 32-year-old A.P. History teacher in California faces 7 various counts of "relations" with a 17-year-old student. Story here. (Special thanks to Monica Krauth for letting us know Coach Ichord's basketball coaching record. That's relevant.)
...that politicians were learning to get along:
  • John Kerry calls the President a criminal and a looter. Story here.
  • New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi tells us that U.S. Senator Charles Schumer would "put a bullet between the president's eyes if he could get away with it." Story here. But seriously, thanks for the apology, Alan. It means a lot.
...they were close to achieving peace in the Middle East:
  • A group of Palestinian gunmen stormed into Palestine Television in challenge to President Mahmoud Abbas. Story here.
  • A group of gunmen in Iraq posing as police kill at least 11 students and kidnap 50 people. Story here.
