Seems fair

Well the snow day phone kerfuffle seems to be more or less done. WaPo is reporting that teen Devraj Kori will serve a Saturday detention for his crimes. Their headline unfortunately states “Fairfax Teen Will Serve Detention for Snow Day Call” which I would certainly hope is not the case – I continue to think there’s no sanctionable action in making a polite phone call to a listed phone number. However a day in detention on the weekend seems quite even-handed as a punishment for posting their home phone and encouraging – either explicitly or by implication – others to call and be obnoxious.

The article says that – as Joe noticed in the comments – the recording is gone from YouTube now, but the two voice links over on this post still seem to work fine. I only mention this since I still think Candy Tistadt should be fired for her part of the transgression and I wouldn’t want to make that assertion without proof.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
