Manvel High School Principal Darrell Alexander, in a phone interview before the meeting, moved to squash rumors that he was somehow involved.
“I’m not under investigation for anything,” Alexander said.
"I'm not under investigation for anything." Heh.
I'd like to nominate this statement for a Brazoria County version of the Bimbo Award. The Bimbo Award was created by Merrie Spaeth, a former media director for President Reagan. According to Ms. Spaeth, the criterion for the Bimbo Award is that "the speaker causes the listener to believe exactly the opposite of what is said." Ms. Spaeth continues: "The award is a reminder that repeating negative words only reinforces the negative message as well as misses the opportunity to convey the right message to the reader or listener."
Let this be a lesson for Mr. Alexander and everyone else. Sometimes "No comment" is the best comment.

1. Houston's summer will be hot and humid.
2. The Astros will miss the playoffs.
3. Darrell Alexander will not be principal at MHS for the 2010-11 school year. (We should at least resign ourselves to the likelihood of that event.)
