It's no longer news when an HISD teacher or employee gets nabbed by Druggy, the drug-sniffing dog. (At least that's we call him.)
Which means it is news when no one gets arrested. And that's what happened today.
Fourteen campuses searched, no arrests.
That means a) Druggy has a stuffy nose; b) Even though our plan to have Bubbles Car Wash offer free detailing to HISD teachers fell through, they still managed to clean their cars; c) Not every campus is Houston is a raging opium den.
The honor roll, as provided by district spokesman Norm Uhl:
Highland Heights Elementary
Park Place Elementary
Mistral Early Childhood Center
J. E. Moreno Elementary
Bellfort Academy Elementary
Way to go guys!! Go celebrate!! (Off campus, please.)
