Studying in the Dark

Of course, we have TRILLIONS for WARS and HANDOUTS to the RICH!!

"Schools to go dark to save on energy costs

The superintendent of the Wachusett Regional School District has come up with a way to deal with rising energy costs at a time of shrinking budgets. Superintendent Thomas Pandiscio said at Monday's school committee meeting that lights in every building, parking lot, and athletic field in the 12-school system will be turned off between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.

That issue raises a whole other set of issues!

F*** Friday Night Football

He says some lights have never been turned off, and he made the decision after consulting with the local police and fire departments, who did not object. Pandiscio did not say how much money the action would save but says the savings will help offset a $123,000 loss of state money to the district. The district covers the towns of Holden, Paxton, Princeton, Rutland, and Sterling (AP)."

One wonders why the wasteful bastards never did this before.
