That was the premise of the post; GA's reasonable belief that Stick and Petrosino are colluding to manufacture harmful narratives about the the Hoboken District schools so they can blame fictitious "failure" on Reform management.
Is GA's belief correct?
Well, I got a call last night from SOMEONE (who shall remain nameless) vehemently denying the accuracy of my post.
"Why didn't you talk to Stick first?" he/she said.
The caller used words like "outrage" and "asshole" to describe Anthony Petrosino and his unrelenting attacks on the Hoboken District School System. The caller said that Petrosino's childhood friends ("Raslowsky") and his own siblings were upset by their brother's attacks on Hoboken's public schools, that no one could understand why he was doing this. The caller agreed when I said that Petrosino needs to be shunned by the decent people of our community. The caller said that Stick had nothing to do with the attacks written by Petrosino on his "education" blog. The caller named HoLa Board members who wanted to kick Petrosino off their board but couldn't because he was "with Frank Raia." The caller asked me to remove the ballerina. A couple of times.
Okay, I replied. That all sounds good, so if I was wrong about Stick, if he is not colluding with Petrosino, I would change the ballerina graphic accordingly. That's fair. But to do so, I needed a statement from Stick Romano repudiating Anthony Petrosino for his unrelenting attacks and LIES about the Hoboken District Public Schools.
From the heart.
What should it say? the caller asked.
I said it should be longer than 5 words.
The caller asked for my email and promised that Stick would write the statement repudiating Petrosino's attacks on schools, teachers and children after his Hudson County Planning Board meeting.
I forwarded my personal email.
And.... here's what Stick has to say publicly about Anthony Petrosino's vicious attacks on the Hoboken District Public Schools:
GA knows the difference between a gust of wind and smoke blown up my ass.
Maybe Stick Romano will change his mind and stand up for the teachers and children of the Hoboken District Public Schools.
