DOT Steals Lolipops From Kids
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!
