While most of the news is full of depressing stories, we can always count on the DC public schools for a laugh.

The principal of a D.C. public school was dismissed after officials concluded that he purchased two buses with school money and that one of them might have been sold in Panama.

One bus sits unused in a school lot, but the other has not been located. A clue to its whereabouts is in a letter written by the fired principal, Enrique Watson, in which he portrays himself as a bus salesman to a potential client in his native Panama, said John M. Cashmon, the school system’s director of compliance.

It would be a lot funnier if this kind of stupidity was unique. Unfortunately, in DC public, it’s just another day.
