Well you people from the suburbs, and I am one of them, we hear the new Buffalo superintendent wants to send our kids to Buffalo schools so their ratings go up and ship their kids over here. They tried that years ago with sending kids from the East Side to the West Side and the West Side to the East Side, and the kids still flunked out. So be aware of what she’s trying to do.

I agree I think that’s a perfect solution for Buffalo schools. I think they should bus the kids from the suburbs into the City of Buffalo schools and vice versa, because that would help the City of Buffalo’s ratings go up and the Buffalo kids would become smarter.

Ironic. Democrats parade out Bill Clinton, a man who lied in office and cheated on his wife. Strange that he would be honored in such a way.

A father and his very young daughter were walking together. And he was very intent on looking at his phone screen. The little girl reached up her hand to take her dad’s but he never noticed it so she put it back down. Now, one day she’s going to reach up her hand but it won’t be to him. So parents, please put down your electronic gadgets for at least an hour and really spend time with your kids.
