    The public school system needs money and an overhaul. I went to public school in West Virginia and the Board of Education had no idea what the average student background was, thus the school catered to only a select few. Also, I was an athlete (varsity golf), some of my teachers would penalize me for it. I graduated with the idea that I had to go to medical school and now I'm finishing college with a degree in International Studies and going to law school. I was not prepared for college and had no true idea of what would be required of me.

    Could the Rick Scott interview have been more loving? When questioned about Columbia's Medicare fraud case, Rick Scott says he as CEO needs to take responsibility. You know how he took responsibility. He stepped down, took a $20million golden parachute, no criminal charges, and left the company, stockholders, and subscribers paying a $1.75 Billion fine; a record. Can I take responsibility like that, please? And then he said of his opponent that they were the CFO of the state and needed to take responsibility for their actions. By which definition, what he says, or what he does.
    What a fraud. Did you agree to these questions in advance?
