Oh, bother! Peter Gorman will have his work cut out for him once he starts his new job as Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Superintendent. He'll have angry parents, a troublesome school board, and lots of classroom problems to keep him busy as a bee. He'll also have to contend with the occasional stings from our Cartoon Caption Contest writers. Mr. McGinnis' best line for our Winnie-the-Pooh metaphor takes this week's grand prize.
