Monday, May 8, 2017 – Teacher Appreciation Week and More from the Pen of the Governor.

The Governor of Texas, Abbot sans Costello, designated the week of May 8 – 12 as Teacher Appreciation Week. So if you are reading this, then thank a teacher and tell them how much you appreciated them. For Extra Credit: Count the number of pencils in the picture.

Of course Abbot sans Costello also signed Senate Bill 4 into law in a secret ceremony live on Facebook. SB 4 is known as “the sanctuary city bill.” In Spanish it means “show us your papers” while we check your immigration status.

Here’s what I’m thinking. If you are a teacher of color or do not have Born in the USA (Thank you, Bruce Springsteen) on your birth certificate, I am not sure how appreciated you are going to feel.
