These are the thoughts of a cantankerous ol' gynecologist who remembers when things were a little different. I try to find a little humor in my life and the people I meet along the way. Come meet the characters in my world.

Millions of Dollars of Scholarship Money

Yesterday was "step up day" at my children's high school. Those kids have really grown up!
Two of the triplets are graduating. My autistic child has chosen to continue at least another year as the "Mayor of " his high school. (ADA allows them to stay until they are 21. (Go Eagles!)
The principal listed all the scholarships that the class of 2012 had received. There are just over 300 graduating seniors. Not all of them are going on to higher education. Even so, there were literally MILLIONS of scholarship dollars awarded yesterday.
One state funded scholarship was about $1.5 MILLION dollars (over 4 years).
Sometimes our tax and other $$ do good work. Like sending laser's kids to college.
