Much ado is being made about School Superintendent appointee acquaintances as well as his lack of K -12 experience.

It should be noted that he has an established relationships with US Education Secretary Margaret Spellings as well as Assistant Secretary Dr. Henry Johnson who like Dr. Murfree is a member of the 100 Black Men of America but those associations have largely gone without notice or commentary.

In the brochure announcing the position opening, there is no mention of K-12 experience as part of the criteria so why now is that a concern?

Finally, what happened between Wednesday and 8:16 Saturday night that would cause Board member Windom to reconsider his vote?

Is this a classic case of the tail wagging the dog?

It is hard to remember that your mission is to drain the swamp when you're up to you waist in alligators!

The letters LEAD when changed spells DEAL, Mr. Windom, what's the DEAL?
