Monday’s Hors d’Oeuvres

Three schoolteachers from Manhattan’s Urban Assembly Media high school were busted for smoking pot outside the Beacon Theater before the Allman Brothers show on Friday night. The trio lucked out and received only desk appearance tickets, but things descended quickly for the shapers of young minds when the New York Post picked up the story and ran the names and photos of the three teachers. New York’s number-two tabloid unsurprisingly had a field day with the story, using every trite pot pun in their comprehensive manual of shlock.

If you’ve ever been out on the crowded street in front of the Beacon, you’d realize lighting up out front is one of the dumbest things you can possibly do. While the inside of the venue is a lawless environment, the outside of the venue is police domain. The three teachers have already been re-assigned, pending what should be an interesting department hearing. Whose got their miracle?

I caught Railroad Earth this weekend and was rewarded with an incredible performance — a review follows shortly. What kept y’all busy this weekend?

  1. They’ve been hinting at that for a while, so I’m guessing it’s real…I kinda feel like if you’re gonna go to the trouble of getting four guys together to play a video game of a rock band, might as well form a fucking rock band.

    Then trash your mom’s basement!

  2. Per “High” School Teachers

    Once again we see the hypocrisy of the good ol USA. Teachers can get shit-ass drunk and do whatever, but as soon as they smoke a little pot, they are evil, heartless bastards that shouldnt be around children.

    That being said, why the heck did they choose right outside the venue to smoke? Newbs.

  3. Pulpio, crazy, I made the same joke when I passed that along to Scotty for inclusion. It’s uncanny!

    Right on, zappa…couldn’t agree more. And that extends well past teachers into almost any profession. People are encouraged to get drunk at almost every work function out there, but one whiff of the pot and it’s all over, the druggies have taken over. I love it, we as a society are awful.
