I think Highland Park has a zero free lunch population. On the other hand, I think the new public housing project at Ohio and George Bush falls in the Plano West attendance zone.

Key word in this post. Public housing is NOT the status quo in western Plano--let's see how well these kids get welcomed by their peers at West.

Well, there is a 7% free lunch population at Plano West now, so they won't be the first ones.

Yes, but that doesn't make it economically diverse in the slightest. Hell, Jesuit and St. Mark's have more poor kids on scholarship than that.

Oh, I totally agree.

Uh, maybe the several dozen times I've spotted assorted professional athletes in the SuperTarget at Park/Tollway, or at LifeTime Fitness on Preston/Legacy? It's like in People magazine. Famous athletes shop! They buy diapers! Their wives nag them! I saw Michael Irvin at Best Buy buying Rock Band 2 for the XBox 360 last Christmas.

Over half of the pros I've seen (mostly football, some basketball & baseball, probably split 25% white/75% black) don't even play for Dallas teams. Why do they live in Gleneagles? Well, everyone has to live somewhere. As I'm sure you are aware, Texas acts as sort of a tax haven, as there is no state income tax. These guys can live anywhere they want in the off-season, and it makes financial sense for them to live in Texas. There's only a certain number of neighborhoods with $2-3 million houses, and a lot of those neighborhoods are less than welcoming to blacks.

Of course. You know, blacks just aren't capable of any kind of profession which requires serious brain power and to expect anything more than physical prowess and success related to, is just too high a standard for those lowly blacks.
Your words, not mine.

Because of course, EVERY successful black person is going to have write ups in such magazines, and of course, Forbes and Black Enterprise are the only such publications which cover these individuals.
Did I say that? What I said was, anyone making TEN TIMES what I do would be prominent enough to be in publications like Black Enterprise or Forbes. I stand by that statement.

Seriously, do you have any idea how ignorant you come across?
I'm going to go out on a limb and say - less ignorant than you.

Plano West attendance area includes a fair-sized chunk of Far North Dallas. There are PLENTY of affordable apartments in the Plano West zone. The zone extends west to Midway, and south to several blocks south of Frankford. The portion of PISD territory south of Geo. Bush and west of the Tollway has cheap houses and cheaper apartments. It's not ALL tea and crumpets at Plano West. Just mostly.

Wasn't there some new section 8 housing built at Hillcrest and 190? Is that in the Plano ISD/Plano West zone?

Yes, that's the public housing project I was speaking of in the earlier post. Isn't Section 8 a voucher program? This Ohio and 190 development is dedicated public housing. It is Plano West attendance zone.

Oh, OK. Yes, I read about that one some time ago. I don't know what the difference between section 8 and public housing is.
