This could not have been predicted.
It will shock readers to find out that “Phil McCraken,” Eileen Dover, and others with strangely homophonic names did not attend the meeting of the Henrico County school board.
The meeting, which is available to watch courtesy the Henrico County Public Schools website, depicts a seemingly exhausted school board chair, Roscoe Cooper, reading the names of individuals who — presumably — signed up to speak.
Cooper says “Phil McCraken”. “Phil McCraken?”
Cooper continues to look for other names after Mr. McCracken is not available. He says nothing to “Ophelia McCracken”, before moving on to “Eileen Dover”, “Don Keydic” and “Wayne Kerr”.
Cooper continues to stare down at his computer and seems to shake his head briefly in dismay before continuing to work.
“Aaron Sorkin… Aaron Sorkin?”
The relevant portion begins at the 3:12:40 mark of the below video.
Look, we get it. We’ve had a difficult year. Public officials are constantly faced with changing healthcare landscapes and a continuing pandemic. Members of the Henrico County School Board should not be surprised if they sometimes take a while to catch up.
They should have had as much fun as the person behind this prank. It’s well deserved, we’re certain.
