PS: a loyal Slog reader has informed me that three American soldiers were killed in Iraq today bringing the total number of American soldiers killed in this glorious war to 3996.

Stay tuned for further news you can use from Seattle's only newspaper.

It's not the Seattle school superintendent being taken to task about the WASL in that article; it's the state Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Not to mention, my kid was tested on the WASL in science, where she had received next to NOTHING in the way of science instruction. Bullshit. Pure bullshit.
