The Greatest Comment Ever In the History of the Seattle Times

I love this, from a recent Seattle Times article on using seniority in layoffs:
Yes - God forbid that you clear out the 'dead wood' and keep the best producers... Only a union mentality would make such an inane statement.

These insane results would not happen if we had a VOUTURE system. Students would take their vouture to the schools that retained the very best teachers - not the schools with the oldest teachers. Let the union-mentality public schools compete for the vouture funding as well. Watch how many kids flock to schools with old dead wood teachers that are there only because of their 'seniority'....

VOUTURES NOW!
I think he was probably trying for "vouchers", but who am I to argue? WE NEED VOUTURES NOW!!!!!!!

Man... that reminds me of some those protest signs teachers were carrying around Olympia during one of their "ditch the kids so we can protest about our pay in Olympia" days a few years back.

Or maybe he meant "vulture."

Students would take their vulture to the schools that retained the very best teachers - not the schools with the oldest teachers.

Of course, the vultures might prefer to be brought to the school with the oldest teachers--especially if they were hungry and the teachers were really, really old.
