It so happens that this is the first time I saw the story, so thanks for the link (if redundant). It was a good story, and certainly prime for the national press. Surprised it made their front page, though.

Great article,,,, it is embarrassing to think the country is reading about this, but at the same time, very necessary....If we could only get the likes of Kiera Bell on council we would be stepping light years ahead..

Do we have stupid politicians, or just smart thirteen year olds? She seemed pretty smart.

LOL! How you look at it is all in your mind.

Maybe the future of Detroit isn' as bad as we all fear? That is, even with the poor schools, we are still producing students like this!

This article proves, yet again, that experience comes with age, but wit and common sense are inherent in everybody.

Let me clarify my last post...

Common sense and wit may be inherent in people, but that doesnt mean people use it.
