Hey Nate, i went to the UofA also, finished in 89'. Ya know, we won
the National Basketball Cahmpionship last year, right?

Yes, i meant public, thaks for the correction.

Also, I do not believe in the way money is distributed to the public
schools for sure. It does cater to the wealthy, the same way private
schools do. I don't mean to insinuate that the public school system is
great, just that it needs minor fixing, not abolishment. There is no
doubt that if there were prayer meetings in public schools, many private
schools would have to close down for lack of interest. Other than as
history, religion has no place in school. As history though, it is a
vital teaching.
