Alas, for an education

While driving back from yet another visit to the dentist, I came across two very good examples of something quite basically wrong with this country.

Item one: a spray-painted, stenciled sign, offering a trade for “Farm, Land, or Traktor”

Item two: the ironic one, at an elementary school, offering “congradulations” to a teacher of the year. I had to wonder, cringing all the while, if said teacher walked into the office and demanded to know if whoever put up that gem was once a student of theirs. Personally, I’d deny it.
