BBBS is infamous for being poorly operated? Where do you get your facts to support this? Infamous with who? BBBS is one of a handful of research based prevention programs that work. I don't agree with using teacher pay to fund them, but clearly these are not the types of programs that are running up our deficit. Until our elected leaders get serious about the sacred cows (defense, s.s., Medicare) we're going to kill our economy and widen the poverty gap. In the end, we all suffer.
