Re: cell phones and low wage workers

Our older daughter had a classmate that had asurprise baby...no one knew she was pregnant...their senior year. It really bugged a lot of people that she was given a full ride to college, for that!

This is the problem: wrong behavior is rewarded, for what seem like right reasons. I think if kids got the messages they need - that delaying gratification is important - more of them would get it. Instead, they see someone, like our rmployee's wife, with five kids by the time she is 25, getting every program in the alphabet handed to her.

If you had to work to vote, politicians would have a very different set of priorities!
