Re: “Johnny Key discovers poverty could affect school performance. Do only charter schools get a pass?

That's what you get (and you will always get), when you put someone in charge who has absolutely no training in education. The volunteers who serve on school boards across the state (including Little Rock) have mandatory training that they must take before they can begin to serve. So, the Little Rock School Board that he replaced has more training then he does...

Re: “This is NOT plagiarism, says Dexter Suggs. But .....

It's not up to the state or Mr. Key to declare plagiarism and revoke his PhD. It was awarded by Indiana Wesleyan, and they will undoubtedly review his thesis carefully, now that the red flag has gone up. In Dr. Sugg's severance agreement, most of the remaining payments, $202,000 if I remember correctly, are tied to him retaining his PhD. If he is indeed found guilty of plagiarism, then that part of the deal will take effect, and he will receive none of those additional payments.
Perhaps the thing to do, if you want to see justice served, is to contact Indiana Wesleyan, inform them that there have been multiple allegations of plagiarism, and see if an ethics or similar complaint has been filed. If they wish to retain their accreditation, they must investigate.

Re: “Fayetteville's Arkadia Retrocade packs 'em in

@Michael Roberts, I understand they've attempted to track down Sinneslöschen reps or someone with access to original equipment for the past year, but they've had no luck. You CAN play a custom-built version of Fix-It Felix, Tron, Asteroids, multiple versions of Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and a wide variety of other games, both popular and unusual.
