It’s ‘kick Lancaster ISD’ day at the Dallas Morning News

And, well earned, even if the Snooze is two months slow on talking about the theft history of former LISD chief financial officer Eugene Smith. That said, the story does provide background on the personal connection between Smith and Superintendent Larry Lewis.

But, the real fun is inJacquielynn Floyd’s column, titled “The spin in Lancaster ISD is getting tiresome.”
If you're not tapping your feet and singing along by now, you must be spiteful or cynical or just plain nuts. You must be against excellence!

It’s a journey to a parallel universe where every problem is a blessing in disguise, where there’s no embarrassment that can't be pasted over with a shiny coat of happy talk, and where, if you don't have something nice to say, you should keep your big mouth shut.
At the center of all this is the district's enigmatic superintendent, Dr. Larry Lewis.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. Although I have said many similar things here in different ways before, and in the pages of Lancaster Today in my final months there.

And no, we’re not against excellence, just against an apparently incompetent administration.
