Even though our noble effort to get the drug-addled teaching corps of HISD free detailing at Bubbles Car Wash ultimately failed, it appears the need for clean ultimately got through.
HISD spokesman Norm Uhl reports that Cracky the drug-sniffing dog (our name for him this week) has searched 58 school parking lots since Tuesday and has not come up with a single hit.
Assuming Cracky hasn't been paid off, or has a terrible doggy cold, that means either HISD teachers have wised up as to how to hide their drugs, or that most teachers in the district are law-abiding, sober citizens (Even the middle-school teachers).
Hey, it's Christmas. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt and go with the latter explanation.
