School districts are suffering from withdrawal

School districts are in hot water because for years they've been putting up showplaces and they're suffering withdrawal symptoms. Showplaces by their very nature are primarily of interest to showoffs.

Please help — the sky will fall, the little kiddies will freeze naked in the snow after they fall off the ice cakes crossing the river, the lights will go out in Georgia and the schools will no longer turn out graduates halfway fit to hold down a job (oops). We must raise the property tax temporarily, the way we did the wheel tax.

School districts are in hot water because for years they've been putting up showplaces and they're suffering withdrawal symptoms. Showplaces by their very nature are primarily of interest to show-offs. There are far worse personality defects. However, I do feel this is one that should be entirely self-supported. I've got enough bad habits of my own to keep fed and financed.
