So I got a phone call today from Andy. It wasn’t social. He said things would “get ugly” if I wrote more about his brief stint at the White House (as I have in the past). And he wasn’t just talking about writing a nasty blog post. He said he’d try and get me fired from EdWeek and blacklisted from other writing projects. Who knows -- he might succeed. The guy knows a lot of people. And not everything I’ve worked on has been 100 percent successful. (Most especially an ill-fated charter schools report I did for Andy at PPI.) Funny thing is, I was thinking about taking the day off writing about him before I got the call. He’s not fun to spar with like he used to be. After that, however, I didn’t really have a choice.
