Weast's selective press availability

Isn't it funny how Superintendent Jerry Weast seems to be available always for carefully-orchestrated media events and to take credit for good news, but is unavailable for comment when the Washington Post calls to ask him about things that make him look bad?

Or how he'll go to places like Walter Johnson High School where the scripted agenda heaps him with praise, but won't go to Seven Locks Elementary School where parents and kids want to ask him tough questions?

Remember how he wimped out of the Kendale hearing a few months ago?

That says a lot about his character.
