I knew Ken Volok. Ken Volok was a friend of mine. You, sir, are no Ken Volok.

The stories in the Independent and the News-Press both clearly state that Ms. Hopkins went to the district to try to resolve these issues but the administration took no action.
And just FYI, most of the 93 comments (to date) are written by about six people using different usernames to push their own agendas. More importantly, they're only read by about eight people (the six people who wrote them and the two people who couldn't figure out how to create a username so they could join in the fun).

Ms. Hopkins has had the courage to come out publicly and take a stand for her convictions. Those of you who are orchestrating this anonymous smear campaign against her should look in the mirror and ask yourselves whether you have the same courage.

Hey @italiansurg, I'm totally with you, man. I'm Caucasian but I once got an amazing tan one summer. I looked like a bronze god! I LOVED it when people started calling me "brown face." I just don't understand why these people get upset when other people define them by the color of their skin. Even when it's not really the color of their skin. It's all so "comical."

@Supportsbschools, maybe I'm wrong but I've read this article twice and nowhere does it say that the teacher is criticizing other Roosevelt teachers -- only the principal. Unfortunately, sometimes the truth is painful.

I see the Ronzone trolls are up early today. The fact that they think racism and discrimination are "frivolous" says it all.

I'm sorry to see anyone go out of business and I'm especially sorry for all the employees who lost their jobs. I wish all of you good luck. At the same time, as a regular Make it Work customer who for years resisted the pushy service agreement hard sell but finally gave in last year (against my better judgment) and bought five hours upfront (only one of which I've used), I'm feeling a little bit screwed. I thought it was a little weird when MIW announced it was scrapping its service agreement policy right after I bought mine. Just FYI to anyone out there in the same line of work, I'll gladly transfer my business to anyone who'll pick up the MIW service agreement...

I'm curious as to why Mills's two accomplices were described in the story as "black." Why is that relevant? The reporters didn't describe Mills as "white." No one else's race/ethnicity is given.

I, too, am absolutely outraged by this extraordinarily egregious defilement of some of journalism's most sacred tenets -- in our own hometown "Independent," of all places...wait a minute, I apologize for my previous diatribe but I inadvertently inserted my head into my anus. Never mind.
