The New York City public school system, on the other hand, mostly has to
get butts in seats, because that's how they get their money. It's not that
the teachers don't want to teach kids; it's that they don't have to. And

onerous that you don't have to do generally runs afoul of other priorities.
You loathsome creature. Just because you are self-indulgently lazy and wouldn't know a conscientious person if she whacked you in the head with a 2x4 doesn't mean the rest of us are like you. Confine your disparaging comments to undereducated econobloggers who would rather stroke themselves than do their goddam jobs.
And thank God you never finished that novel. It also would have taken the place of more deserving writing.
