DOT Steals Lolipops From Kids

Talk about cruel. The LA DOT left 90 kids waiting for a bus and then said NO. Back to your classes. No field trip for you.

From the Daily News:

CANOGA PARK - Ninety kids at Canoga Park Lutheran School, with 15 parents and teachers, stood huddled on a porch in the rain last Tuesday clutching the King Tut tickets they bought months ago as they waited eagerly for two free buses they had ordered through a city charter program.

At the last minute, a call came from the city - there would be no buses. There had been a "clerical" mistake.

There would be no field trip to the sold-out "Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs" exhibit, so the disappointed grade-schoolers, some in tears, trooped back inside holding their soggy, nonrefundable $20 tickets and sack lunches.


Good news is that non-government entities are coming to the rescue. Figures!

DOT prepare to buy new tickets for the kids and provide actual transportation, that would be the best thing for your department to do today.

Jackie Ybarra is the worst thing to happen to DOT Charter Bus program. How many community groups will this dumb broad screw over before she gets fired?
