    During the past week the local TV stations have been reporting on parents camped out in front of a new elementary school, in order to be first in line to apply to put their kid in it next fall. The reason? It specializes in engineering, I kid you not:

    They could use a spell check program

    What if the child doesn't want to be an engineer?

    nah, silly would be an art magnet school. if they don't like engineering, we could always have them wear ballet tights and sing the Fame theme.

    (actually, this one is better than the theme, non-musically)
