The Second Oldest Profession Editor:  What is going on with our educators, LL?

Cumberland Cat:  On Cumberland our educators are forbidden from joining a union, as are all people whose salary is paid for with tax money.  We pay them to teach a lot of subjects.  Political thoughts are only taught in classes about governments.  No opinions are permitted.  Here are examples of some problems caused by public employee unions.

With schools being closed the feds should not fund any school activities or contribute to salaries.

These people also want schools to remain closed.

Ole Joe wants public schools to teach Islam.  What a guy.

If teachers and college professors can’t teach in class, their salaries should be stopped.  Let them file for unemployment benefits like everyone else.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

NGC 6188: The Dragons of Ara
Image Credit & Copyright: Ariel L. Cappelletti

Explanation: Dark shapes with bright edges winging their way through dusty NGC 6188 are tens of light-years long. The emission nebula is found near the edge of an otherwise dark and large molecular cloud in the southern constellation Ara, about 4,000 light-years away. Born in that region only a few million years ago, the massive young stars of the embedded Ara OB1 association sculpt the fantastic shapes and power the nebular glow with stellar winds and intense ultraviolet radiation. The recent star formation itself was likely triggered by winds and supernova explosions, from previous generations of massive stars, that swept up and compressed the molecular gas. The featured image accumulated over 10 hours through a backyard telescope in Córdoba, Argentina and was false-colored using the Hubble palette highlighting emission from sulfur, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms in red, green, and blue hues. The field of view spans about four full Moons, corresponding to about 150 light years at the estimated distance of NGC 6188.
