Yes, we are aware that three more HISD employees have been nabbed with drugs today by the now-infamous drug-sniffing dog.

In other news, there was traffic on the Southwest Freeway coming into work this morning. And the sun is expected to set in the west this evening.

It really is best now to leave it in the hands of the news stations, who even now are putting together elaborate packages that no doubt include the piercing question "Is Your Child Safe?" (Because a teacher who gets high might one day put down the Shakespeare and....and....do something dangerous?)

Look, we've already given officials 10 Ways To Tell Your Teachers & Staff Are Getting High. We've done all we can.

As for you teachers, it's almost become a slap in the face to the media -- if you're not thinking of better ways to hide your drugs after all these stories, we're not sure we want you teaching our kids.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
