Stray Griffins


I'm not up on my fictional bird-things, but I think those are Griffins. Whatever they are, they definitely seem misplaced on that building.

* The Philadelphia superintendent of schools recently lost her $350,000 a year job:

Now, Ackerman stands to add an additional $573 per week to her bank account. That’s the Pennsylvania state maximum amount allowed for unemployment benefits; Ackerman applied for those benefits last month.

Her severance package reportedly included "$905,000 in buyout and $83,000 in unused benefits" and an agreement by the school district not to contest her application for unemployment benefits.

That is so wrong. But, she's not the only rich person to get unemployment. See Should Millionaires Be Eligible for Unemployment Benefits? for the rest of the story.
