It seems like we were just heralding the arrival of summer and suddenly its time for back-to-school shopping, with some areas of the country already in session. As you pick out backpacks, pencils, and cool binders with bells and whistles (anybody remember the Trapper Keeper--the must have binder of the early 80's?), don't forget to pick up a few extra supplies for your child's teacher.
Supplies for the teacher, you ask? Isn't that what my tax dollars cover?
