Seems a rural school district has decided to cut back it’s school week to 4 days due to high gas prices. I’m mulling that over as i type this, part of me thinks its a great idea, part of me worries about child care costs for working Moms going up. But, I have long advocated for shorter work weeks. I think productivity would go up, and families would have more time together.
On a related note, for some reason I decided to tune in to local radio, where I was besieged by ads urging me to tell my Senator that Tennessee cannot afford to lose 80k jobs a year. The ad stated “of coarse tennesseans want a cleaner environment, but….” and then goes on to basically debunk Global Climate Change and ANY regulatory steps to fight it. Turns out, it was paid for by the Club For Growth. Nuff said.
