Becky's dealing with a different kind of zombie now — high school kids during first period!

By the way, although the Chicago teacher's union is on strike as of today, Becky is not a strikebreaker; the substitute teaching network (mentioned in #718) only works with charter and private schools, not Chicago Public Schools. As a pinko, I just that to be clear.

The Substitute is, of course, a 1996 action thriller starring Tom Berenger best known for spawning three straight-to-DVD sequels (starring Treat Williams).

Back to the movie on Thursday… assuming I get the strip done on time. See you then.

Coincidentally, I'm TAing my first discussion groups at the University of Minnesota today! So I guess it's my first day as a teacher, as well. Kind of.
