This is a left over April Fools joke, right?

Tut tut. I don't know. People at the Rappaport Institute lecture last night on public, charter, and pilot schools thought the guy is doing a pretty good job.

He's stealing our good and creative educators!

Sorry. I wasn't trying to criticize Booker. I was trying to point out the irony of someone who thinks Housing Projects can be fixed by security and playgrounds speaking at an event associated with Jane Jacobs.

I saw a documentary about him when he was running for the first time for mayor against the previous, allegedly corrupt, mayor (he lost). He actually took residence in one of the city's projects, but he was campaigning on reforming them (a contentious topic it turned out).

Just showing up is 9/10ths of life. Also, I often set low expectations and exceed them.
