I've been looking at the latest education budget since being
approved last week. Most spending levels are flat. Reading, mentoring and
sex ed got bumps. I did notice some areas where Bush (Rove) just
tried to kill programs and in some cases succeeded.

Here's the link..

In some cases this is good news, but mostly bad news.
Looks like Bush's favorite number is 0.

Lucky me I have to be in school for only 1.5 years more.

I noticed a drop-out prevention program.

I dropped out of school.
Took the GED test.
Passed on the first try.
Beat the living fu*k out of staying in school.

I'm going to actually agree with bush's $0 request.
Seems to me that money could be better used elsewhere.
