Good Government Of Springfield

Good Government Of Springfield SEPTA Tree Removal

Bad government has to be condemned but that means good government has to be praised.

Dead tree the unit block of North Rolling Road in Springfield, Pa. became an eyesore and a bit of danger. The trees were on government property — a township-owned traffic island and land belong to SEPTA.

Township officials were notified on Aug. 19.

The spruce on the traffic island came down on Aug. 22.

The SEPTA oaks came down today, Oct. 1.

Kudos to Jim Merkin, Mike Puppio and especially commissioner Bob Layden.

Goddard Hipsters Tap Capital Punisher As Commencement Speaker

Danny and Maureen Faulkner Goddard Hipsters Tap Capital Punisher As Commencement Speaker

The hipster undergrads at the Vermont campus of Goddard College have tapped murderer Mumia Abu-Jamal to be a “commencement” speaker this Sunday, Oct. 5, showing they are just fine with capital punishment providing the subject of such is one whose existence violates their sense of aesthetics.

Danny Faulkner, the Philadelphia policeman who Jamal murdered on Dec. 9, 1981 solely because he was a Philadelphia policeman doing his job, is one such whose life the hipsters hold cheap.

Jamal, of course, will not be able to appear in person so he will subject the hipster undergrads to his hipster, progressive, transgressive wisdom via a recording which we suspect will justly bore them silly.

May it last at least two hours.

Goddard is a private liberal arts college with campuses in Plainfield, Vt, Port Townsend, Wa. and Seattle, Wa.  that is designed to be an experimental and non-traditional educational institution.

It holds 20 commencement ceremonies annually to provide personalized graduation ceremonies in each degree program, according Interim President Bob Kenny.

The choice of the murderer Jamal was made by the students but is strongly supported by the administration showing that the school’s support for selective capital punishment goes all the way to the top.

“Choosing Mumia as their commencement speaker, to me, shows how this newest group of Goddard graduates expresses their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that,” Kenny said.

Daniel J. Faulkner was murdered two weeks before his 26th birthday. He was the youngest of seven children in an Irish Catholic family from Southwest Philadelphia.  His father, who drove a trolley car, died of a heart attack when Faulkner was five. Faulkner’s mother went to work and relied on her older children to help raise him. Faulkner dropped out of high school, but earned his diploma and an associate’s degree in criminal justice while serving in the United States Army.

After leaving the army In 1975, he  worked briefly as a corrections officer, and then joined the Philadelphia Police Department. Aspiring to be a city prosecutor, Faulkner enrolled in college to earn his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

He married in 1979.

His wife, Maureen, has been an outspoken defender of the truth about what happened that night and the guilt of Jamal and the cruelty of his act.

May Goddard and the soulless bastards who support it rot.

Answer to yesterday’s puzzle: Nevertheless the passions, whether violent or not, should never be so expressed as to reach the point of causing disgust; and music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Professor Cyril Broderick Claims Ebola Conspiracy

With the first American Ebola case now confirmed in Dallas, we should note some things not to do for those in a position to have a forum and we will start with Delaware State Professor Cyril E. Broderick, Sr., a Liberian native who had a screed published in the Monrovia Daily Observer blaming the disease on the CIA.

The Daily Observer is Liberia’s largest newspaper.

Broderick cited the 1989 novel The Hot Zone as his source.

Really.

Delaware State is defending Broderick declaring that  it is his First Amendment right to spout this garbage.

Of course, that’s a straw man. Nobody is advocating jail for this twit. We are suggesting it be appropriate to condemn what he wrote — The First Amendment applies to Delaware State administrators as well, after all — and takes step to disassociate the school from him.

It is a sad day when the NFL takes idiotic statements by its employees more seriously than academia.

Education Bills Pending In Pa

Continuing our commitment to ensuring a quality education for Pennsylvania students, the House last week took up four school-related bills, reports state Rep. Jim Cox (R-129)

Senate Bill 1281 would reform the cumbersome and outdated reimbursement process for school renovation and construction projects, Cox said. It would also establish a publicly accessible Internet database (SchoolWATCH) that shows exactly how taxpayer money is being spent by schools as a way to increase transparency; and give school districts flexibility for obtaining the necessary 180 school days in a school year in the case of weather emergencies. The bill awaits further consideration by the Senate.

In addition, House Bill 1207 seeks to expand access to the popular Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) or the Educational Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC) programs, which help provide opportunities for students to participate in innovated educational programs. The legislation is awaiting further consideration by the full House.

Finally, House Bill 2076 would make sure high school students get the college credits they earn through Advanced Placement and other educational programs by requiring the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education to adopt uniform standards to ensure that all credits transfer between the State System universities seamlessly. The bill awaits action in the Senate.

“The House continues to look for ways to improve educational opportunities for all students across the Commonwealth, with more efficient oversight, streamlining the bureaucratic process, and putting students first,” Cox said.
