About Kaleem Caire — Madison news commentator Derrell Connor says what I would have said:
Kaleem Caire was a tireless advocate for people of color and at a disadvantage in this community. He shined a bright light on an issue that has plagued this community for decades, and one that many people either paid lip service to or ignored altogether. That being said if Kaleem truly did something illegal, board members would’ve taken his keys, told him to pack his stuff, and they would’ve escorted him out the door. They wouldn’t have allowed him to stay for 30 days to help find his successor.
We await Mr. Caire’s next chapter. Hope he writes it here in Madison.
Good for Mrs. Bush! — Barbara Bush canceled her subscription to The New York Times. Politico reports that the former first lady read an obituary that concluded, “Don’t send flowers, don’t send donations to anything, cancel your New York Times subscription.” “So I did,” she explained.
The Connecticut newspaper obituary: “Leonard Smith hated pointless bureaucracy, thoughtless inefficiency and bad ideas born of good intentions. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you cancel your subscription to The New York Times.”
The War on Women continues — A Florida judge has granted a temporary protective order to the wife of Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson after he allegedly shoved her during a weekend dispute, according to a complaint obtained by The Orlando Sentinel.
Let the record show — Mitt was right about Russia, Obama was wrong. Just a thought: Let Crimea return to Russia. Will make it easier for the rest of Ukraine to plot its own course.
