In response to the question, Why aren't these corrupt people not in jail? Answer: Money talks. Unfortunately, it speaks a lot more loudly than pain and poverty.
I see where the current Republican attorney general is taking credit for what Democrat Darrell McGraw did in 2011. He is taking credit for getting money for people who were done wrongly by mortgage companies. Darrell McGraw got the money for the people.
I hope you can get the 2013-14 school calendar. Whenever you can get it, I'd like for you to put it in the Gazette.
