I tend to just kind of skim over the op-ed pieces in my newspaper, but when Lukey’s smiling face is looking at me from the middle of the article, I read it.
A pretty boring op-ed piece about some blah blah blah young government blah blah blah. However, this, well THIS is astounding:
In a town filled with institutions of higher learning, it’s striking that, with Mr. Ravenstahl’s elevation, Tonya Payne now is the only college graduate on City Council.
He’s like joking right? No way. Did you all know that?
I’m not saying if you don’t have a college degree, you suck and aren’t worthy of any success. Not at all. Lots of people are successful without a degree.
HOWEVER, you wouldn’t hire a high school graduate to run your Fortune 500 company, and yet we have assembled a big group of high school graduates to run the city. That is shocking. And a little bit scary.
What’s quite funny though is the way that these dudes walk around with their air of superiority and the perceived awesomeness of their massive brains to the point where they’re like, oh, don’t get too close you might get some of my plentiful and far superior brain matter on you. They appear on the news using their big words and talk about how they know what is best for the city, and yet, they aren’t that educated.
This totally explains two things:
1. Why Twanda Carlisle thought her $30,000 shittastic health study was a piece of scholastic genius.
