Oh, that Ken Schram. What a card!
Growing up on the west side we all knew who Ken Schram was—that guy with the amazing voice on channel 4 who was always complaining about something or another. I think he even had his own local talk show in the 3:00 hour for a while when I was a kid, but I might be getting him confused with a different show. I seem to remember him being there with the lady my grandma loved who did the recaps of the soaps that day.
Anyhow, he’s a professional ranter now. The link that I found off of 5/17 (a great blog that I’m sad I hadn’t found much earlier) shows Ken standing in front of a “Schram on the Street” logo, which is mildly amusing since I’m pretty sure that Ken’s street is either a) somewhere in Edmonds b) behind a gate or c) somewhere behind a gate in Edmonds.
Apparently the Federal Way SD is suing the state. Ken’s all for it. He even calls out the WEA for not doing enough and giving the legislature too many chances, which is absolutely baffling because if there’s one thing the WEA has never been accused of it is being apolitical on a school funding issue.
Good ol’ Ken. He’s like our Andy Rooney, the same way that Bill Nye the Science Guy is like our Bill Nye the Speedwalker.
