Is There a Lawyer in the House?

Full disclosure: I home-school my kids. That’s right, it’s not just for right-wing freaks, it’s for left-wing freaks too! We just do it without all the anti-Darwin rhetoric. Anyhoo, with that out of the way I can ask you, what in the Sam Hell is going on with the Wake County School Board? Weren’t those folks elected, like, two minutes ago? How can they show up at their first meeting, on their first day in office, with an agenda? Is that legal?

Clearly, the new majority has met before. Their tacky “celebration” soiree showed that they consider themselves the school board in toto. The group identity is off-putting but not, in itself, a problem. However, showing up at the first meeting -again, on the first day of their terms! – with an agenda smacks of cabal, and that ain’t democratic. C’mon, let the sun shine! Not only is it better for everyone, it’s the legal thing to do. Getting together to plan an agenda, before you’ve taken office, and with no notice to the press or public is just not cricket. I hate to use such strong language, but this is serious. I hope Wake County’s lawyers are paying attention.
