Yay! My car made it into the Dallas Morning News...

Well, sort of...

They were apparently doing a write up about how my school district was going to lose money next year due to robin hood expenditures, but they caught 3 benzes in the parking lot and snapped a picture! Can you imagine, im giving my school such a bad name!!! The E on the right is my car and the CLK on the left is my friends. Nobody knows who owns the S in the background. My friend and I always park hood badge to badge to basically just be obnoxious because our school has a reputation for being wealthy (its pretty true) and stuck up (as evident, we milk this for all its worth). Of course, I paid for my own car with money I earned independently of my folks but that always seems to escape those who hate the fact that I make better used car buying decisions than them...

Btw, sorry about the horrible quality, its a scan of a photocopy of a newspaper... uck, but I couldn't find a copy of the paper anywhere except our school library...

I think a law has been filed which will do away with Robin Hood... heard something on the news.... they will have to find some other way to finance rural and poor school districts...

are you sure? It would seem that the districts that benefit from robin hood far outnumber those that don't, and I would imagine they would form a formidable voting presence...and I seriously doubt the state would leave those poorer districts floundering... its one thing to bring down the best schools and try to raise up the worst, and another to just dump the worst schools altogether.
