Kiss and don't TEL

As Pho points out, Cincinnati public schools Superintendent Rosa Blackwell is silent on the issue of Ohio's proposed Tax & Expenditure Limitation amendment (TEL), according to an article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. This is strange, because TEL is described by most school officials in the state as a very bad thing for education, until you realize that she's the wife of Ken Blackwell, the author of the amendment. TEL (or TEL/TABOR) would also be bad for public libraries in Ohio. The Ohio Library Council has made its defeat their top priority in 2006. This amendment will be on the ballot in November. If you live in Ohio, please vote against it, for the sake of your local government, schools, and libraries.
