On the Breathitt County School system

Few things in this world make me fighting mad.  But then, there's this.

This is my hometown.  This where my formative years were spent.   And, because of idiotic graft, nepotism, and malfeasance, this is where my blood relations remain trapped in a cycle of hopelessness compounded by cronyism, intent on keeping power (what pathetic excuse for power it is!) for themselves.

Were I Dante, there'd be some Terza Rima regarding Arch Turner and his ilk's future in Hell, but words fail me.

WHY ARE THERE NOT RIOTS IN THE STREETS OF JACKSON?!

What sort of combination of (Apocryphal, yet apt) "Boiled Frog" syndrome and Stockholm Syndrome exists on the Middle Fork of the Kentucky River that tolerates this?   Yes, I understand a large percentage of people find primary or secondary employment from the school system or the (almost as nepotistic!) District 11 of the Ky DOT.  Everything is political, and being on the "outs" is a 1-way ticket to welfare.  

Still yet, I hope this state intervention enflames the populace to take back their school board and keep them on a short leash henceforth.
