A husband for the teacher

Jim Miller links to a good news story about Iraqi schools: Teachers earn so much that they’re hot marriage prospects.

    Dang, look what that Bush feller’s gone and done again. It’s Bush’s fault, it’s Bush’s fault (this is suppose to be humor folks – except to liberals).

    How much will Iraqi teachers make after the United States is no longer paying for everything?

    A government job is indeed the ticket to wealth in most non-capitalist societies. It is becoming so in our country too as we drift further into socialism.

  6. Hey John,

    Why don’t you get into teaching, then? As a middle school teacher, I’m so rich I could choke.

  7. Rita C. says:

    Yeah, I hear we need more good teachers. You all seem to know exactly how the job should be done. Join the party!
