Publius is a commenter on the famous Delaware blog, Kilroy’s Delaware. Publius is anonymous, but quite a few of us have figured out the true identity of this rather interesting individual. This isn’t a Clark Kent/Superman kind of thing, it’s more like a Verbal Kint/Keyser Soze kind of mystery. It’s bloggers code not to out anyone, but that doesn’t mean some of us don’t drop hints to let Publius know: “We know who you are!” Nobody ticks people off over on Kilroy’s more than this pompous ass, and Publius loves every minute of it.
This charter school loving commenter has an argument for everything. Kilroy allows him to do this, because of free speech, but also cause of blog ratings. The most watched news is usually the worst news, and Publius raises this level of curiosity in people, kind of like watching a house burning down. For the holidays, I thought I would give Publius a few gifts. Kilroy already got him a present this morning after I went off on Publius last night. This was the conversation, which was about the Priority Schools petition currently running, for folks to protest it.

This petition is bunk.

You are a pompous ass. You and the soulless “500 SOBs behind you” helped to create exactly what is going on with these schools. With your damn corporate games. Who the hell do you think you are? Do you think because you have money and you are some big player in the charter world you can dictate what fits in the almighty Publius world and what doesn’t? I know you just can’t help yourself, but you are proving more and more every day why you are nothing but a coward hiding behind a fake name. Be a man and show the world who you really are. Can’t do that though, can you? Got a rep to live up to. It’s people like you that make the rest of us fight like hell to protect what is being taken by you monsters.
Did Publius deserve my ire? Yeah, Publius is like nails on a chalkboard, or that annoying noise that comes out of a balloon when you let the air out just right.
Publius believes enrollment preference is a charter school’s God given right, even in the face of an ACLU lawsuit going on in Delaware. He comes from a culture where money is the only thing that matters, and only the best can move forward. So I thought I would give him a present to show him the error of his ways. So in 2015, Publius will get this:
to see how children are treated at many charters in America:
because we know the end goal for Publius and his corporate education reformer sons of bitches behind him is this:
So Merry Christmas Publius, and we look forward to hearing more of your insane midnight rantings on Kilroy’s. I know I’ll actually see you around town.
