In Michael Scott's last episode the emotions fly freely. As Michael says his goodbyes to each individual co-worker, Will Ferrel's DeAngelo Vickers simultaneously asserts and embarrasses himself every chance he gets.
Michael Scott is scheduled to leave "The Office" after seven award winning seasons. Will Ferrel, Will Arnett, and series creator Ricky Gervais will stand in to ensure an epic send off to one of America's most endearing jerks.
Lawmakers are responsible for almost all facets of public education. They okay the yearly planning, as well as approve the meager funding. It is time that the ones most responsible begin to face consequences of their massive failures.
There are never enough funding sources and resources for America's education system. What message do "leaders" send when they feel that sports arenas and billionaire tax breaks are worth more than education and social advancement?
Series creator Ricky Gervais's show stealing cameo mixed with Andy Benard's absurd seminar. Sprinkle in a sprinting Kevin, creepy Creed, and top it off with one of Michael Scott's best/worst impersonations ever.
Millionaires and billionaires will continue to get unnecessary tax cuts for two more years. We literally cannot afford that. Caught in the middle of this cold theft are millions of students. Here is a way we can make it right.
Erin and Gabe put together a "Glee" watch party to break the ice on their new relationship. This causes tension between Andy and Michael. Meanwhile Jim and Pam discover Dwight has a curious way with young kids.
Obama's deficit commission was tasked with getting America's fiscal house in order. What materialized was a terrifying taste of a future of raised retirement ages and massive cuts in Medicare, Social Security, and Education. America's battle begins here.
Since 2004 Houston has used traffic cameras at certain busy intersections. As the vote on whether to keep or remove them nears, it is important to understand the pros and cons of Traffic Light cameras.
While Texas "educators" debate nonsense like human/ dinosaur co-habitation our students are being set up to fail. What we don't invent today we buy tomorrow. If we are not making students world leaders we are regulating them to followers.
Democrats in red states are running away from President Obama's progressive agenda. Wrong move. All historic steps toward equality have been democratic principals. Texas state Rep. Scott Hochberg is a good example of a strong governance.
True the vote, a false voter suppression right wing group posing as a watchdog group, plan to obstruct and meddle with minority voters. This tried and true republican strategy disenfranchises the very voters they work against.
This year 100 pastors participated in Pulpit Free Sunday with a supposedly innocent mission to re-dress some clergy's issues with the Federal Tax Law of '54. Of course the truth is less spiritual and more sinister.
Houston's obesity rate is epidemic. Overweight, sugar and fat-filled kids perform poorly in school, adversely affecting all facets of society. Governor Perry's lawsuit steals money from healthy lunch alternatives.
Much criticism has surrounded the 6-month moratorium on deep water drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. However, 11 people died and millions more were affected forever. A through inspection of all rigs must happen to ensure no more unnecessary casualties.
I am a high school teacher in Texas. I have seen first hand how the current state government has systematically crippled k-12 public education system. More programs with less funding. More instruction with less planning time and more students.
I was asked to write an opinion piece in 2004 on race relations in general, and to comment on why some things perpetually resurface in this national disgrace. It was MY opinion, in 2004 no less. Stay tuned for the 2009 update.
