Patriotism is Dead
A New York woman claims that she was forced from her teaching post by an elementary school principal who objected to her Republican activism and last year ordered the removal of a portrait of President George W.

In a federal discrimination lawsuit, Jillian Caruso, 26, claims that she was improperly forced to resign her job by Birch Lane Elementary School principal Joyce Becker-Seddio, the wife of state Assemblyman Frank Seddio, a Brooklyn Democrat.

Well, this just goes to show that wacky, partisan zealotry truly is bipartisan. Under no circumstances were the parents justified in asking that the portrait be removed. Even if it was Bush up there, he *is* the sitting President and from what I could tell, that portrait is nothing more than a respectful ackowledgement of who the current leader of this country is. This and the bumper sticker story make me wonder if anti-discrimination laws should include political beliefs for idiot employers that can't seperate political affiliation from productivity.

I found your blog through a google search and really enjoyed reading your latest few posts. You have some really wonderful pictures to share.

Blog on, Jan!

Too bad everyone can see her home address on that document! Maybe we can all write her an encouraging letter.

Yes, that is the trouble with bringing a public lawsuit. . . everything becomes public. Of course, you never really anticipate getting Drudged.
