iJeers: To a technology company for dropping support for old systems. All they’re interested in is making you purchase newer ones. If they suddenly found they could no longer get parts for a 2010 Cadillac, they would be raising holy hell.

Jeers: To Fort Worth school Superintendent Walter Dansby for woefully inadequate oversight of “self-authorized” overtime payments in the tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars. We may have the inmates running the asylum, but the buck stops at the superintendent’s desk.
