Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Billboard showcases rising cost of prom: Prom season — a period during the high school year when the economic disparity between the privileged and not-so privileged becomes more evident, and popularity contests are waged with formal attire, after-parties, limousines and ... billboards.

Waiting at the intersection of W.S. Young Drive and Veterans Memorial Boulevard, drivers were captivated this week by a pink rotating outdoor sign: "Vote Brandy Day for Prom Queen!"

There wasn't any of this stuff in my high school days. We voted for the prettiest girl for queen and the nicest guy, or the girls boyfriend, for king. I skipped my senior prom to go see Dick Dale and the Del-Tones.
