January 18, 2011

Did You Hear the One About the Teacher Who Was a Whore?

September 30, 2010

The New York Post is doing its best to fan the flames of a scandal in NYC. Apparently a young woman with a bad dye job, Melissa Petro, got lifetime tenure as a teacher and then within seconds revealed on a blog that she was a prostitute. Oh, I’m sorry, a sex worker professional. Which […]
