I don't know whether to start laughing or crying!
For those of you out there who are saying "no way," go to www.pleasanton.k12.ca.us, click on Foothill High School, then select Foothill Staff and you will see that Jan Bing is listed as a counseling secretary at Foothill High School.

It would be appropriate for Jeb Bing to do what others have done in similar situations - recuse himself from the discussion.
