A Season in Hell #27: School Layoffs, and a Dry Demartini

Tonight on the show, I spoke a bit about the California budget crises, which has led to a $40 million cut in education in SFUSD, where I teach. I, myself, have received a layoff notice, and it will hit me hard if I do not return to teaching next year. Hopefully the school district and the city/county of San Francisco will be able to come to a deal, regarding the city’s rainy day fund, and then they can rescind thee layoffs. Keep your fingers crossed please.

An old friend stopped by to say hello: Curtis Demartini. curtis was the former button monkey for Live 105 morning show host Alex Bennett, back in the 90s. We met at Burning Man, when I invited him to come on and do a show. We used to make a lot of fun of Alex. He’s easy to make fun of.

Curtis and Chuck Farnum (who phoned in) have a website, you can access here. They look for a weird time wherever they can find it.
