Holy Smokes! It ain't good. I admit I actually liked Arnold's State of the State speech this morning, even if he did reference Conan. He focused on the fact that we can't think or even talk about anything till we get this budget balanced. What I really liked was his suggestion to stop paychecks to representatives everyday that the budget is past due. I don't think the Representative (his audience) thought that was a good idea, as there wasn't even a single clap for it, but I thought it was perfect.
After the speech I went to pick up my daughter at school, where I was given a letter from LAUSD. The letter basically said, and I'm paraphrasing here, You thought public schools sucked before just wait till you see what they're going to be like with these new budget cuts. The letter warns of program cuts, increased class sizes, and major lay offs.
So, what do we do?? I haven't the foggiest idea.
