|I thank you for being one of the few to say publicly, what so many have
only been willing to say privately. I have had to endure a lot of abuse
because I alone was willing to publicly speak the truth of what's
happened and the lousy character of "the board".

I'm having flash backs of when school district 79 asked me if NYLXS had
a PHP curiculum. I mentioned it in the education commitee meeting and
Rubin Evan and I along with every one else there but sunny agreed we
should offer them our perl curiculum but if they insist on PHP we should
introduce them to the right people at nyphp because the already had a
curiculum ready to go and every body would win. Sunnys responce was that
Rubin and I were anti php. I told him if he wanted to write a better
curriculum than nyphps the please do so and well get them to switch to
his once it was ready. Sunny the threw a fit and stomed out saying I
wasn't letting him participate because I hated php and would never come
to one of our meetings again.
The best part is he went crying to jay about it, and the next time I ran
into jay all he talked abou is how psyco sunny was for bad mouthing my
work with the schools lol.
I'm amused and disturbed by this whole thing because sunnys antics are
still hilarious but I'm sorry nylug is getting hurt by it.
