Russian Roulette

The buzz in the staff meeting about the upcoming budget cuts.  Uh oh.  Someone definitely screwed up ordering those Kindles.  This time, I could walk away, a free agent, guiltless in my dispassionate observations.  Yesterday’s beat told me everything I needed to know.  It was “recess duty” but since I was working undercover, my alibi was dead on.
Russian Roulette made the budget cuts sound deadlier than the usual slash and burn.  Telling this to a bunch of teachers struggling to put gas into their vehicles put a new spin on things and made the pacing guides seem like a menu for disaster.
