A Chicago school superintendent is facing termination for a gag video he made to welcome new teachers.  He spliced footage of their interviews with questions that were later recorded, such as “What were the results of the last drug test that you took?”  The reply: “It was positive.”This causes me...

I purchased a former bank building.  The interior requires some renovation but the majority is all glass offices.  You can see what’s going on everywhere and would know if there was a fire.  The local fire department wants me to install a sprinkler system even though they aren’t required by state...
