Good article. I did not realize that we had 25K students. That's 1/3 of the city population. I wonder if they pay 1/3 of the taxes that it takes to run our infrastructure?

They must be paying the tax because they can't seem to afford building another theater. They want $1M from us perminant citizens so we can recoop $36,000 a year in A&P taxes. Hmmm. Must be that new math.

Is anybody else tired of dealing with children who seemingly have endless expense accounts?
