Sunday Photo-'Toons 1.4


This week's venture into the re-interpretation of reality to reveal underlying truth (hopefully with a chuckle thrown in) welcomes a new participant.

Frequent O'Zone commenter I. M. Townie has donated a couple of  Photo-'Toons of his own. I welcome his contributions, and I hope that O'Zone readers will enjoy them.

It's been a busy week in local and national politics, and there was much more grist for the humor mill. Regrettably, time only allows so much in the world of satire manufacturing.

    1. You are only painting one side of the picture...Jack Jovan and David DeGregorio were also part of the group that caused the $3 million deficit. All three were on School Committee together and voted together...

      Do you have a special needs child? Because if you did you would understand the aggravation we have to deal with. The main stream children get the education they need to make it in the world, while we have to fight for our kids. What is so wrong with voting for me?, I care about these children and their parents? I truly know how it feels to have to fight with the district for services and a education plan for my child, like the rest of the special needs parents. When have you had to fight with the district to educate your child? Yes "I care about Special Needs Kids" as well as the Main Stream Kids and the ELL (English language learner) Kids. I want to see all of these kids succeed in school.

    2. Amen. As the uncle of two special needs kids (cerebral palsy), my sister had to move to GA, which provided more attention than MA. No, you don't build a public school for one group of people, but you do build it with ALL in mind. If you don't agree with that, perhaps you can get "re-educated"?

    3. But when you have a limited budget what part of that budget in relatve terms goes to special need instead of the mainstream (normal) kids who have a real future and can contibute to society.

    4. I agree with both of you. We need to think of ALL the children and I feel that a lot of children are overlooked and it does appear that the Southbridge school system was built to help one group of children. I am a parent of a student that has had MANY struggles throughout the years in school that have caused my child a lot of pain and heartache that will forever remain. Although, the school system says they have put a lot of time and work into resolving these issues I have to disgree because I had to pull my child out of school to be home tutored. So with that being said I feel there needs to be a change because if I wasn't such a strong advocate for my child she may have REALLY fallen through the cracks. If anything, the parent of a special needs child has more empathy and understanding for ALL children because they know how hard they have to fight for their children's needs to be met.

      Funny you think the mainstream(NORMAL)kids have a real future and can contribute. Look around between 60 to 70 percent of Southbridge receive Transitional Assistance. So what are all those NORMAL people contributing?

  5. Jack and Scott have busted their asses to give us the new school we need. These others were just doing every thing they could to block progress.

  6. Is Bubba Bishop part of their idea of progress?

  7. Let's see how these guys react if we try to name the school after Susan B. Anthony and the athletic fields after Nancy Kerrigan.

    1. Actually, that is a great idea. It would do more to promote Southbridge than anything Acly has done.

      My only resrvation would be to see enough balance that people stop voting for the likes of Nikolla, Clemence and Regis just because their women.

    2. Yup, and lets name the gym after Richard Simmons.

      Delete
    3. Another great idea, you bigoted jerk. Just imagine the media attention with him and Nancy here for the dedication.

      Delete
    4. Actually, there is no evidence that Richard Simmons is gay.

  8. Thanks for all the distractions you gay loving feminazis. Your just like Obama. You are all supporting an anti God agenda. You will all burn in the fires of HELL.

  10. I am sick to death of this crap. I have a child with a Learning Disability. On the surface, the average person would never realize that this child has struggled to learn. The kid started out in the Southbridge school system, doing okay, but what a WORLD of differences in services and results when we moved to another town. BTW, neither parent in this family is on transitional assistance, etc. I love how people like to bash kids/families with "special needs" like it's leprosy. ANYONE can have a child with special needs. I don't for a minute think that the Southbridge schools cater to those children any more than others do. But don't worry, I'm sure the new high school will have state-of-the-art-football-everything, and the "special needs kids" won't get one more iota of specialists, because, afterall, we know what Lazo and Jovan care about, and it ain't academics.
