1. Glad it got straightened out.

Strange story. I would have thought it was some kind of campaign stunt except that it happened today and the election was yesterday.

6. When I heard "male kindergarten teacher" ...I began to have my doubts

 

It just seemed off.

Not that there is anything wrong with males teaching children of that age, I just had some questions about the guy.
