“Keeping Parents Informed”


The teacher’s union


to keep parents informed

during the strike.


The Education Minister declares

24/7 negotiation.


The Board of Education says

schools will remain open,

but no instruction

and no guarantees

for students’ safety.


I remember a joke…


An establishment

offers entertainment

for men.


Customers are greeted

with champagne, caviar,

discretely asked

their preferences:

blondes, or brunettes,

full bodied, or slim built.

The place opened last week

– no girls yet –

but everyone agrees

the management

is superb.
