I'm generally pleasant to anyone I find myself face to face with, but there are certain people that I will go to lengths to steer clear of.

Washington schools closed for the remainder of the year. I knew this was coming back in March.
I get cancelling through May or June, but announcing at this point that aren’t starting up in the fall is retarded.
I'm pretty sure he means the rest of this school year not calendar year.

Looks like Coast Guard to me. my guess is it's a long-ago retired U.S. coastguard vessel - auctioned as junk - then found its way to Venezuela :lol: and now apparently it is at its final resting place Got me curious so I found it.

Absolutely nothing. They just indicate which states were more-densely populated before the outbreak. The U.S. is exp...

Re: Poll: After The Virus?

I would check on that contract closely. Our teachers are at will but it basically means they can't be fired or laid off during the school year without cause. State law requires us to tell a teacher by mid April if they aren't going to be renewed for the next year so they can look for a job for the ...

Does she not have an employment contract for the school year? Here the teachers all get paid for their contracts through the end of the school year even though they aren't teaching. She does have a "contract" but AFAIK it's at will, and I've always been under the impression that at will meant you c...

Fortunately, elections are about ideas. Unfortunately, both major parties have put forth candidates who are morally bankrupt.
