And Another Thing


Today's priority check

I don't want to say Monteverde Academy in Orlando, Fla., has its priorities out of whack. But its priorities are out of whack.

Seriously? You lured a successful high school basketball coach from New Jersey with a $130,000 salary, plus a free car and a free house?

In case you were wondering, this is more than three coaches who got their teams to the NCAA Tournament are currently making. For a high school coach.

Which only begs one question, of course: Wonder how much the chemistry teacher's making? And you suppose he got a free car and house out of the deal?

Or at least a really cool keychain?
