I also receive Eileen Tyrrell's stupid mass emails. I think Artie makes a good case that thisRead Moreseries of RSforRS diatribes is indeed a thinly veiled political campaign to get her elected. I also enjoyed the Animal Farm analogy... so true. Thanks for taking-on the defense of our elected officials and schools. Especially for providing real data and links to the statements.

This quote provides the short version of Mr. Romero's point about Eileen Tyrrell and her RSRSRead Morecronie s: “We live in a world where unfortunately the distinction between true and false appears to become increasingly blurred by manipulation of facts, by exploitation of uncritical minds, and by the pollution of the language.” ― Arne Tiselius (Nobel Prize award address, 1948)

I was not present at the meeting hosted by the league of Women Voters where people got to questionRead Moret he candidates and hear them speak. But I did get an earful afterwards from my wife and her friends, and they were impressed with Kinder and Dolle, and completely unimpressed with Eileen Tyrrell. I did not hear anything about the other two candidates. But some of what I was told corresponds with the things Mr. Romero says in his article, so I think there is a lot of truth here. Undoubtably some of his comments, beyond factual accuracy, are colored by his low opinion of Ms. Tyrrell's suitability to be a board member. But as someone else says here, she deserves it. I wish that Eileen Tyrrell would stop bashing our schools. Who would want to buy a home in Rockwood after searching it on the Internet and finding her comments smeared all over? She is not doing the schools or our property values any good

Well, I was also at the Board meeting and the article seems pretty accurate to me. It may be aRead Morelittl e hard on Eileen Tyrrell, but frankly, she deserves it, and even this is largely accurate. I am astounded that she seeks to be on the board of education after spending the last 2-3 years attacking our schools. Not only is she a lightweight for the role, I am afraid that she will be terribly disruptive to the board meetings.

Actually, the Galileo statement is completely appropriate. Further to the point, the reader canRead Moreexa mine the quote I included at the top of this "article", borrowed by me from another's previous supporting comment. You are having a hard time following Mr. Rizzo. They say that story-type examples can aid understanding so I will provide one. First, the a headline-grabbing statement in the manner of your group: "Everyone who consumed tomatoes in 1860 died." At face value this seems shocking, and perhaps we should stop eating tomatoes with such a causative finding in the press. In fact, I can visualize your group's media release: "despite concerns of food safety, RSD cafeterias insist on serving tomatoes to students - throw out the Board members!". But then I might respond: "well... hold on, everyone from 1860 is now dead and tomatoes are not the cause". At this queue, you would come in to say that I am generalizing, and I respond to say that you are omitting important detail.

Joe, I clearly pointed out a blatant error in Mr Miller's leading statement about kinder and doellRead Moreb eing involved in the hiring of borchers former colleagues. That still has not been corrected in his essay and is the very first evidence he presents.

Mr. Rizzo: You fail to make a point. And saying it over and over again won't make it so. I canRead Moreprovi de another story showcasing that misinformation is often in the form of information "out of context". The fallacy of omission. Maybe I can't help you, but I am sure the readers understand why Mr. Miller omitted this detail, just as they understand why I felt an honest discussion should include it. But your goal here does not include honesty with the reader, right?

This is a shameful list of half-truths, innuendo, and purposeful misinformation. Mr. Miller should Read Morebe ashamed of himself.

Nope, not ashamed. And I won't be bullied either. The First Amendment allows Artie and Larry andRead MoreTho mas the ability to provide such wonderful reading -- the same should be accorded to me, right? I'm not associated with RS for RS, nor am I working on behalf of any candidate. I would ask the reader to ignore the fiery rhetoric of inflammatory comments such as Thomas' and check each link above for more in-depth information about what happened during Doell and Kinder's watch and decide for themselves if they're part of the problem or part of the solution. Whoever you vote fore, please DO vote on Tuesday.
