There Are No Poor Children In Park Cities, And Other Gems

Park Cities People’s Merritt Patterson takes realtor Bill Cherry to task for some of his recent assertions on his real estate blog.

Having read it, I have some questions, too. Should we itemize them? Sure, let’s jump and itemize.

1. Cherry says,” The cities share a no-nonsense police department that, by keeping its officers on the road — most in very visible SUV patrol wagons — it can’t be anything less than obvious that those passing through had better not misbehave.” Well, not really.  Highland Park and University Park have separate police departments.

2. Cherry says, “Since no poor people of any measurable amount live in the Park Cities, no poor children are enrolled in Highland Park ISD.” In other words, if you have a intense dislike of poor people and poor children, the Park Cities are for you!

3. Cherry says, “And the cost of those schools is paid by tax dollars.” Pretty much all public schools – no wait, ALL public schools – are paid for by tax dollars. Highland Park ISD also raises a pant load of money with Mad for Plaid and other efforts – and that money goes to pay what tax dollars do not.

So in conclusion, I suggest the following new topics for blog posts:
