Why didn't Carl blog today?

Because he did double duty last night. He wasn't scheduled to anchor yesterday, but when we were uncomfortably close to airtime with no anchor in sight, Carl stepped in, probably fixed his hair, and got on the set.

He wasn't the only one who we went above and beyond their usual jobs. The program was formatted for another anchor, which means scripts, lower-third graphics and our web transcript all had to be changed at the last minute. (Take a bow Student News production staff, you know who you are...)

    I think you should put him in jail for a month, but once you let him go and have a breath of freedom, throw a bucket of acid on him.

    I think he deserves to have acid on his face because its
    not fair if he just goes to jail with no punishment and she
    has to spend her whole life blind so i hope it happens....

    I think that she should do whatever she thinks she should do because if I where her I think I would do the same thing not just that she dosn't what anyone else to get hurt but also because she wants the person who did it to her should get a more harsh punishment.

    How bout this Carl? 10 1/2 months of school? Half day. No lunch provided and no PE! Make it the responsibility of the parents to feed and exercise their children. Then everyone would have a month and half off, half the day to enjoy. And we save money by cutting PE and lunch. Win win.
