Frank Biden Discovers Blogging (Sort Of)
Biden, brother of the Amtrak-riding vice president, has entered into the wild world of WordPress to tout his for-profit chain of charter schools, Mavericks in Education Florida. As president and "P.T. Barnum" of the West Palm Beach-based chain, it's not surprising that Biden would want to brag about Mavericks on his very own site.
Here's how he begins a March 29 entry:
Frank Biden is the brother of US Vice President Joe Biden. He is making a name for himself in the education sector as the President and Director for Business Development of Mavericks in Education, an educational institution that is dedicated to the design, development, and delivery of innovative, out-of-the-box, and effective educational solutions to students who are at risk of dropping out of school.
"Hello World!" it begins. "Welcome to WordPress.com. After you read this, you should delete and write your own post, with a new title above."
Clearly Biden, or the person doing his typing, didn't read all that carefully. Luckily, Biden's running charter schools that claim to educate students with an "innovative" online curriculum, so this newfangled tech stuff should be no problem for them.
