Thomas Jefferson: The boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave.

From RH Jones, January 24, 2008
Subject: Re: The coming Ohio STRS board election
To all active/retired educators:
Reasonable thinking active/retired teachers probably would want to elect a STRS board member who is a watch dog, not a lap dog, of our STRS employees -- that is just doing what is expected. And that should not be controversial.
“The boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave”.
