I went to a one year old birthday party recently, and the young mother, who is very loving and usually fairly sensible, was giving her daughter a bottle of sweet tea.

She wasn't speaking in absolutes about "All" of anything. She used terms such as "probably" and "less likely" and "may", indicating that those things were plausible or even probably, but not that it was that way for all.

It depends on the water source. The water around here has a definitive chemical taste, so we tend to flavor it some.

I do know a cashier at Walmart. No, she didn't go to college. Yes, she feeds her children rainbow goldfish and fake fruit leather.

I say that this may or may not be an education issue, but it is definitely a financial issue.
