“I can’t throw him out,” Heartwell said. “(It) is just beyond my conception, but unless he’ll leave voluntarily, I can’t put him out of your school.”
Quote from me:

“So, in essence, you would rather have me in this room than get rid of something you don’t use. That really is how simple it is,” Lambert told the commission. “If you really don’t want me here, and really I don’t want to be here, the answer is quite simple. When you say there’s nothing you can do about it, that’s not true. Amend your ordinance you don’t use and I won’t be here anymore.”

Nice work. Good luck with you continued effort. Seems like teaching your dog to deal cards and change the oil in your car would be easier.
Common sense, isn't.
I can't fix stupid.

Logic is lost on the irrational.
When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace. Luke 11:21

Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."  Luke 22:36
