Ghouls, the hand reaching out from the grave to grab you and suck you in.
That is the way many of the teachers in my school see ex-Principal Suit. They despise the man and all he stands for yet they fear terrible consequences if they do not go to his party and honor him.
Tonight there will be many people in attendance. Many will be teachers who he has humiliated and hurt financially (taken away per session jobs). Many have been denied comp time jobs they were entitled to. Poor sheep, too scared to take a stand. Too scared to stand up for what they know is right.
