SURVEY says: BZZZZZZZZZ!!!! Wrong!!!! We took a survey of the
parents and the kids (they were accurate) and we found that only 3 (count
them:1...2...3) out of 24 (you can count them on your own) parents were at
work. The other 21 used the (can I laugh?) "program" as a babysitting
facility because it was cheap and they wanted to relax.

ARE YOU KIDDING? The kids hardly wanted to be there in the first place.
All of their friends went home and they wanted to go with them. We even had a
kid "stow-away" to go home. That is another story. It wasn't the program
they didn't like, but rather that all their friends were giong home to play.
I'm telling you, the area that these kids grow up in is not a pro-sports
plasce. It is basically a bunch of snotty kids that get EVERYTHING they ask
for. We combined our totals and the staff received 12 threats of being sued
(by kids) during the summer.

I don't approve of Nintendo. Yes it would generate good PR *IF* it was
bought, but I don't think the end justifies the means.
