To no one’s surprise at all, Mayor Bloomberg has ordered the schools opened tomorrow (as reported by the NY Times and various other outlets). Thanks, Bloomy! I always love shlepping and shlipping over ice and snow when everyone with half a brain decides to stay inside. But never mind me or my colleagues – how about the kids?
I heard on the radio today that the morning commute tomorrow will be as bad as the ride home tonight, and believe me, it was bad. But hey, mobilze over 1 million people and staff who work or study in the schools. Why not? No danger there! Let the world’s biggest babysitting service go on.
