Channeling Jasper McLevy

Jasper McLevy, the former mayor of Bridgeport, once famously responded to the question of snow removal:  “God put it there, let Him take it away.”

Well, He certainly has His work cut out for Him right now.

In related news, when principal John Dodig arrived at Staples at the crack of dawn today, he realized parking would be tough.  He immediately texted and emailed students:  Please don’t drive.

Amazingly, many heeded his call.  Today’s lots were almost empty.

Sure, plenty of teenage drivers hadn’t yet dug their cars out.  (Or had them dug out.)  Still, it’s the thought that counts.

Staples High School, 9 a.m. today.

    Jasper is quite an interesting character. A Socialist who could balance the books in bad times. Mayor for 24 years. Thanks for the name-drop.

    • Hey Dude,

      I’m currently writing a paper about Dan (and 06880) for an undergraduate anthropology class, and I was wondering if you would contribute to my research by consenting to being interviewed?

      Thank you, and have a good weekend,

        Rebecca: Certainly. Dan has my email address. I would prefer it be an online-email exchange format of an interview.
