[ - ] ok, i feel like the free lunch program is a joke. just got my form i'm supposed to complete and it says if we made 65,860 with EIGHT people in our household we'd be eligible. how in the heck could i possibly living in manhattan making that much money with that many people?!??! 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

i know that probably sounded bad, but it just seems like if they're really trying to help people that they would broaden who was eligible. in a city this expensive it seems you would qualify if you made that much money and had only one child. [ Reply | More ]

It used to be like that in reality at our school. They never collected money, so anyone got it that went in. Now, they have to punch in a number and pay. I have also had students that need free lunch who have parents that are unemployed who cannot get it because they are not on food stamps. [ Reply | More ]

They go by federal standards, not NYC standards & yes, even in most places in the US it would be nearly impossible to support 8 people on 70K. THe poverty line has never had much to do with reality & less so in recent years. [ Reply | More ]

no, i didn't mean it that way at all. i just think it seems rather stingy and not very helpful. it would seem that more people should qualify. in nyc, i think you could use a free lunch even if you made a lot more money with eight members in your family. [ Reply | More ]

my point is that even if you make more than that much money and you're not lucky enough to have gotten a rent controlled apartment, it would seem you should qualify. i have friends that live WAY better than me and have way more spending money than me even though they make less because they live in rent controlled apts. it seems that there should be more to consider. sorry, but if i moved to manhattan and tried to find an apartment told to hold eight people for that much money it would be impossible.

She began college at Hawaii Pacific University, a private, nonsectarian school in Honolulu. She attended only as a freshman during the fall of 1982, school spokeswoman Crystale Lopez said. Then known as Sarah Louise Heath, she was in the business administration program as a full-time student, Lopez said. From Hawaii Pacific, Palin transferred to North Idaho College, a two-year school in Coeur d'Alene, about 30 miles east of Spokane. She attended the college as a general studies major for two semesters, in spring 1983 and fall 1983, spokeswoman Stacy Hudson said. 10 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

how is this the same thing? we want dc to be in a neighborhood school when he's a child. that's our choice. if you want your dc on a bus for two hours a day, more power to you. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I love new school years. Met a mom at drop off who was so full of herself that she had to mention 4 times in 15 minutes that she was an EXECUTIVE producer. Not a producer, mind you. An EXECUTIVE producer. I wanted to ask her if she would mind much if I dropped to my knees to worship her. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I agree. Most kids get over it and most kids are proud of their wohm mothers. It's too bad that sometimes it's other women who make them feel bad. [ Reply | More ]
