"Sales in 2005 allowed the chamber to donate $13,000 to the Preston School District Education Foundation, plunk $25,000 into its annual Festival of Lights event Thanksgiving weekend and pay for this year's festival."
Interesting. 13k to school, 25k (a teacher's salary in a year) to the festival of lights. Seems to me it should be the other way around. Skimp on the lights, and buy the kids some damn books and microscopes! HOW CAN YOU NOT GIVE MORE MONEY TO SCHOOLS???
What is wrong with freaking America?
