Karen Yelsey slammed a recent blog post of mine via a column in the Daily Pilot. Poor Karen: The picture accompanying the column is of Martha Fluor.

I won’t bother you with a defense of just how bad things are in the district. I just want to confess: It’s all my fault. All of it: The lax school safety, the rubber stamping, the Mariners Gold Ribbon mess, the draining of the Estancia pool, the grade hacking, the prom draft, the low test scores – all of it. My fault.
