I've had it. Secretaries of state, cabinet officers and presidents cannot duck responsibility (for Internal Revenue Service targeting, failures in Benghazi, seizing of reporters' phone records) simply by claiming, "I wasn't aware ..." or "I wasn't involved ..."
They're supposed to be aware of, involved in and accountable for such actions, not to mention the tone that top leadership sets, which encourages events, good and bad. Whatever happened to "the buck stops here"?
Another thing. What's with the shallow reporting on the H.E. McCracken Middle School principal's absenteeism, while drawing six-figure salary and benefits, then having his contract renewed because "it's the law?" I can't believe that. What does the law actually say? This is so outrageous that I am disappointed in the newspaper's lack of hard, follow-up investigative probing here.
Never miss a local story.
