As a follow up to the "protractor" post of 3/6, we note that Sen. Griffo has flown into action. His complaint to State Education Commissioner Mills about the faulty devices garnered two stories in local media: here in the OD and here at WIBX.
According to the OD:
"Griffo asked Mills to come up with a solution to the problem, calling the distribution of faulty protractors a "needless" and "unconscionable" mistake."
The WIBX report, however, revealed Griffo's solution to the problem:
"Griffo says he would like correct protractors to be sent out in their place, and to re-imburse taxpayers the 325-thousand dollars it took to produce the defective instruments."
Hmmm . . . . I wonder where he thought the money to reimburse the taxpayers would come from?
