Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my wonderful things!  How are you?  I'm doing fine.  The weather has been mostly pleasant, although we've had a few storms.  The temperature has been decent, but the humidity has been unpleasant.  Some trees are already turning and others have even dropped all of their leaves.  It is usually the weakest trees that drop their leaves first.  I noticed that Mr. Sheriff completely forgot to mark the beginning of autumn in an open blog.  Shame on you, Mr, Sheriff.

There have been some changes in the standings of the Irregular Fantasy Football League.  Take a look:

(Don't forget to click the image to enlarge it.)  I haven't moved in the standings, but Mr. OrbsCorbs has jumped two spots to number 4.  And the Half-Astrophysicists have fallen two spots, to number 3.  Oh my.

Well, all the buzz in the city is about the recall effort to unseat Ms. Hanson from the District Attorney's position.  The primary impetus for this arose from the Ty'Rese West shooting.  Ms. Hanson exonerated Officer Giese of any charges in the shooting.  Ty'Rese's family is not satisfied with the 28 page report that Ms. Hanson released.  Most recall efforts are difficult.  Those working to recall Ms. Hanson have to collect 21,000 signatures  That's a lot, but the volunteers don't seem fazed.  They have a long road ahead of them.

Then there;s the slightly sagging Racine Unified School District  test scores.  I can think of no entity in the city which takes so much money and does so poorly with it.  The continual shift to different teaching models leaves the staff confused.  What a poor excuse for a school district.

It's hard to think about RUSD without thinking about the new bus service that they have contracted for.  My God, what a mess.  Does anyone know what the supposed advantage over the old bus company that this new one is supposed to have?  They seem incapable of delivering quality bus service to the students of RUSD.  Why aren't the suits manning buses?  Are they still pushing pencils while a 6-year-old has to wait 90 minutes for her bus to show up?  How disgusting.

Thank you for reading my blog this week.  I appreciate all of the readers I can get.  They mark my success,  Please, tell your relatives and friends about Dear Madame Zoltar.

Enjoy this great weather while you can.  Soon the treacherous s-word will howl and send us all into a deep freeze.  Oh dear, I'm not ready for that.  I love you all and encourage you to show your love to each other.  Love makes the world go round.
