Reading, Writing and, Just In Case, Grenade Launchers

Turns out San Diego isn't the only school district in the country to get a $700,000 Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected Armored Vehicle and other military baubles from a federal government overloaded with shiny lethal gimcrackery from its many failed wars. At least 120 schools and colleges in 33 states, including Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Michigan, Nevada and Utah, have gotten such geegaws, according to tenacious reporting by Muckrock and others. Texas - including the town of Cut and Shoot, population 1,000 - tops the list, with at least ten districts gleefully acquiring 15 surplus military vehicles, 64 M-16 rifles, 18 M-14 rifles, 25 automatic pistols, extended magazines, 4,500 rounds of ammunition, armored plating and tactical vests.
