Just a Quick Shake of the Head
Reading Pat Crowley’s reaction in the comments section of my previous post, I find myself shaking my head at the inability of a certain type to comprehend that some people take an honest interest in the world around them and pursue and present knowledge with the intention of finding the truth.
I meant it when I said that everybody involved in the latest round of the Tiverton teacher contract spat may be better informed than me, and I mean it when I say that I’m interested in the counterarguments to that which I’ve found. I’ve no direct personal investment in this fight — except, of course, as a taxpayer and a parent in Tiverton — and I’m not colluding with anybody to affect negotiations.
I’m not even especially invested in my argument. If it turns out that Pat is correct on the law (which would seem to require that subsequent case law had gutted the legislated language, although I could be wrong about that, too), I’ll admit it and move on to argue that the law is perverse and that Mr. Rearick was right to challenge it.
