L.A. Board 'doesn't believe' Deasy is crooked

From L.A. school board's statement on the departure of Supt. John Deasy:
The Board "does not believe that the superintendent engaged in any ethical violations or unlawful acts."
Not exactly the carefully-chosen words you want to see in a reference letter from a former employer. I mean, it should go without saying. Shouldn't it?

But if Deasy isn't greasy, why isn't the board sharing its internal probe of the iPad contracting process?

Inquiring minds want to know.

And here we go with the third go-round of Ray Cortines, the 82-year-old, don't make waves, utility manager, who will keep the seat warm until Bill and Eli can find another hatchet man for LAUSD.


  1. Somewhere, someone didn't believe that Robert Felner was crooked either...

  2. For those readers who don't know who the Robert Felner, that R. Skeels is referring to,
    read about the last time John Deasy stepped down, back in 2008.

  3. Mike - that is one fascinating link! Love this comment (do read the comments!):


    “A Prison College Course, Anyone?”

    Tirn, you’re on to something. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bobby isn’t contemplating a “prison college.” Here are some courses he might design for the inmates: “Bullying Pays Off,” “How to Fool Educated People & Make Big Bucks,” “Management by Fear & Intimidation: How It Works,” “Stop Worrying about Loss of Conscience: A Short Course in Getting Ahead,” “How to Act Like You’re a Grantsman,” “Walking the Thin Line Between Normalcy & Insanity and Being Successful at It,” “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” etc. He could call it “The Bobster School for Convicted Scoundrels.”


Agree? Disagree? Let me hear from you.
