. . .
Sen. Gloria G. Lawlah (D-Hillcrest Heights) praised Johnson for bringing the delegation together. She also lavished praise on schools chief Andre J. Hornsby, who was in attendance as well, for the work he has done in the school system.
I don't understand!
Murders and car thefts are up on Johnson's watch. The schools remain lousy and Hornsby is under investigation.
Why the praise, especially for Hornsby?
Does Sen. Lawlah endorse ethics violations, school bus and report card problems, audit delays?
And how about Johnson's failure to deal with the ongoing, graffiti-covered Oxon Hill Library fiasco in Sen. Lawlah's own district?
Does Sen. Lawlah somehow have the difference between success and failure turned around in her mind?
