Late Friday FU goes out to Mayor Bloomberg

The Problem's We All Share -- Norman Rockwell

 A middle finger salute goes out to N.Y. Mayor Bloomberg for his recent ignorant, racist and arrogant assault on parents, civil rights groups and unions. Who does he think he is, Donald Trump?

In response to the massive pushback being organized against his plan to close 22 more neighborhood schools, including lawsuits filed by the NAACP and the teachers union, Bloomberg was transparent in his attitude towards parents.

“Unfortunately there are some parents who just come from — they never had a formal education, and they don’t understand the value of education,” -- NYT City Room
He went on to observe: “The old Norman Rockwell family is gone.” I can only imagine what it is about the Rockwell era that Bloomberg longs for.
