Chaz, the low pole people at the daily news and post have "endorsed" the moskowitz charter school march tomorrow. The newspapers post and news in this town are so far off base that it actually has become hysterical beyone belief. But I just read that the average reading level of the typical ny post or ny daily news reader is 3rd grade level....So, most of their bullshit is read by people who really do not understand what they are reading so save you .75 cent and give the change to the homeless guy in the subway
