M.I.A.

Me- in action, sometimes inaction, but always- acting out!
 

The vicious cycle of privledge

So NorthPark Mall, for the non-locals, is an uppity mall. There's a Barney's New York for the love uh gawd. NP Mall will have a children's library opening in May. Initially I thought this is an excellent idea. This will provide many parents an opportunity to sit down with their children while attending to all those bothersome errands that the nanny did not seem to get to. This library will empower those many affluent children to have an all too rare exposure to books and literacy.

Can we get an additional outreach library in South Dallas?
Can we get an additional outreach library at the Courthouse?
Can we get an additional outreach library where literacy really is a struggle?!?

This is why the kids with money really do better on standardized tests and subsequently do better in college and subsequently do better in --- well, I think you see where this is going. Generations from now, those same kids may be reading to their kids- because they're the only ones that got jobs that pay them well enough to shop there in the first place.

Imagine the disappointment they'll feel should any aspire to work in social services.

A Library? Can't they pay someone to read to their children. I was really hoping that northpark wold open a Condoms to Go or Pipe Shop. I figured since they opened a theater and food court that they wanted to open the upper class society to our more common Americana ways. Every mall needs to have access to "personal massagers", incense, and a beautiful bong or two. Don't you think?

I really shouldn't type such comments under the influence of Benadryl.
