Well, here's a first. A ho-hum columnist writes a ho-hum column apologizing for his ho-hum columns.
You can believe what you wish, I'm stating facts. Mr. Cook's columns belong in "NEA Today," not a daily newspaper.
Okay, when are you going to do pontificate on how black lives matter in Chattanooga when a black shoots at another black? Do those lives matter too? How about writing a column the next time that happens? You shouldn't have to wait long. It happens at least once a day.
True fact: talk to electricians, secretaries, plumbers, the cable guy, road builders, pipe fitters, accountants, nurses...they will all tell you they're underpaid, and wish they had cheaper insurance. Sorry, friends. It's not just teachers, despite what David Cook wants you to believe. It's America 2014. You can either whine about it, or live your life, and be thankful you have a job.
Is there a limit on how many times you can write the same column, over and over? I hate to break it to ya Davey, but teachers aren't the only ones who wish they made more money and had cheaper insurance costs. Ask anyone in any profession, you'll get the same complaints. Even newspaper reporters. I know teachers who have switched professions. Guess what? They're still unhappy. Most everybody is these days. It's life, deal with it.
Silence. That's what I figured the response would be. Journalism: try it when you get a chance.
Yes, I remember when he was let go by CNN last year. I would like more information: how much is UTC paying this unemployed journalist to come back home 4 times a year?
Three things you can count on, every Sunday morning: church bells ringing, Face the Nation, and Alison Gerber giving herself a big ol' pat on the back.
Thank you Mr. Cook for mandating when, and for whom, I may mourn. Obviously I didn't have enough sense to figure this out for myself. All this time, I was sad about the death of Robin Williams, but thanks to you, I realize that was a waste of time. Where would I be without your divine guidance. Please continue to make important choices for me. I now have no idea what to have for breakfast in the morning. I'll be waiting for your directive.
