Update: Nelson recently refused to take a raise, Laredotejas stands corrected.

Sometimes, I can't help but be influenced by the LMT's  asleep-at-the-wheelitis. Case in point: I recently suggested that UISD and LISD superintendents take a voluntary cut in pay as a show of leadership for their respective districts. Well, fellow blogger Que Fregados brought it to my attention that Nelson had just turned down a raise. I had missed that recent development and I applaud Dr. Nelson for taking this action of his own accord. Some may say it's mostly symbolic but how many of us would volunteer to do with less money? A letter to the editor appeared in today's LMT praising Dr. Nelson as well. Thanks again to Que Fregados for the heads up and congratulations to Dr. Nelson for his example.

  1. Thanks Max. I wish I had more time to post and had been meaning to point this out from the LMT but... such is life. I'm working on one right now and trying to be as fair as possible. A ver que :).
