More School Waste...This Time in Michigan

I thought this was a joke, but apparently it's true: Democrats in the Michigan House of Representatives have proposed that every school student in the state be given an iPod.

Why? They haven't said. How much will this cost the financially strapped state? They haven't divulged that either.

My guess to the first question is that the only way they can get kids to come to class or sit still once they get there is by bribing them with the iPods so they can zone out to their favorite tunes. It's as good a reason as any.
