Kathleen Grimm was on the PEP. She heard me. She also lived near me on the upper east side of Manhattan, and we often saw each other on the street, in nearby stores, etc.
Despite her job at the DOE and my finding lots wrong with the policies of the DOE and their implementation, Ms. Grimm always was friendly and respectful, as am I. But I admired her. She stood out from the crowd over there at Tweed, because of her quiet decency. I have been tortured by many who work for the DOE, and my children were all victims as well.
But Kathleen Grimm was different.
I will miss her.
