Ward inducted into Hall of Fame

This morning, back from Florida and feeling rested, Mayor Art Ward was inducted into the Bristol Eastern High School Hall of Fame.
"I'm very humbled," the mayor said.
Joking that the move was unrelated to his academic record, Ward said he is the second Eastern alumni to be chosen for the honor.
Last year, Mike Reiss, a writer for "The Simpsons," was the first to be picked for the school's hall of fame.
There's probably a good "Simpsons" episode in this, but I'll let it go.

Wards head will be getting larger.

Why should Art use Nicastro's line: they are made from the same mold.

Thats because he exceeded all expectations: he graduated.

How obvious, they're sucking up to the "Arty let's party" before the tough budget meetings. Who wants to bet that Bristol Eastern is spared the deep cuts?

It's either this or they are desperate, kinda like scraping the bottom of the barrel for the dregs.

"Fame or shame?"

Guess that depends on whether or not you get inducted. From the juvenile comments here, I guess it's a shame for those wannabes who don't...
