It’s sad because it’s true

Text message conversation of the week:

Me: Why does the government care where I went to high school? Won’t that count against me?

My brother: I’m not sure if the Marshall High School is such a big deal for them. I think it actually makes the background check easier because so many people from Marshall are in the same place (prison in Jeff City) … And if you think that Marshall High School is going to count against you, just wait till you enter the degree in journalism.
