Art Teacher Defiles Groucho

Posted by bmac on October 4, 2007

“Art” teacher fired for “Butt Painting”in a Groucho mask no less. Of course he’s suing, and the ACLU is involved.

 *exasperated sigh* Can’t you just be an art teacher dude? Does everybody have to be outrageous?    

Cuffy weighs in here.

Totally off topic but, another thing I’ve been seeing a lot lately is lawyers and judges with ponytails, ala Ron Kuby.

Guys, grow the fuck up already.

And while I’m ranting, can anyone tell me why diesel fuel is 50 cents more a gallon than premium?!  I bought a Ford F-350 diesel five years ago when I was doing slab marble and granite, because I needed a truck that could handle 1-2 full granite kitchens every day. I was especially psyched because diesel fuel was cheaper and no smog check. Now, I have to get a totally un-necessary smog check every year so the city can stick their hand in my pocket, and diesel fuel is waaay more than premium gas. Why? It’s less refined. Is it an extra tax to stick it to truckers?

Okay, I’m done. Carry on.

    “Until several years ago, the average price of diesel fuel was usually lower than the average price of gasoline. In some winters when the demand for distillate heating oil was high, the price of diesel fuel rose above the gasoline price. Since September 2004, the price of diesel fuel has been generally higher than the price of regular gasoline all year round for several reasons. Worldwide demand for diesel fuel and other distillate fuel oils has been increasing steadily, with strong demand in China, Europe, and the U.S., putting more pressure on the tight global refining capacity. In the U.S., the transition to low-sulfur diesel fuel has affected diesel fuel production and distribution costs. Also, the Federal excise tax on diesel fuel is 6 cents higher per gallon (24.4 cents per gallon) than the tax on gasoline. “

    Well, there ya go. Makes sense. 50 cents a gallon still seems a bit much though.
