I am not one to avoid controversy. Controversy is fun, especially when you get the British to try to pronounce it.
"ConTROversy," they say, and I laugh. Oh, those silly Atlantic islanders!
But I digress. My son attends Bullis Charter School. The school is controversial to the point where it takes up every waking hour of several nutballs. It's controversial for a number of reasons, one of which is illustrated in the picture above. Can you see what the problem is?
Did you catch it?
- It's not that the entire school is built from temporary shelters, while the other schools in the district are permanent buildings.
- It's not that the school is on six acres of land when (for the number of students) it should be on at least ten.
- It's not that the people next to the flagpole have no heads, although that is a problem.
|That's a whole lot of flags. No wonder you're all jealous.|
- The American flag, so you know we're all fans of America.
- The California State flag, in case you get lost on your way to Oregon.
- The California Distinguished School flag, so you know we're distinguished.
- The Western something or other flag that... I really don't know what it's for.
|I call this the "Fringe Pole."|
- BCS logo flag, so you know what school this is, in case you get lost on the way to another school.
- Our school principal flag, so you can wave when she walks by.
- A dragon, because dragons are cool.
