Decatur High School

I snapped this pic of the new Decatur High School today. Despite my Bridgeport roots that I refuse to let go of, I have to admit that place looks good. A couple of weeks ago I overheard a guy say "A nice school sends the message that a community cares about its kids. It's a great selling point." Although statements like that normally make me roll my eyes, that one was right on point. The location, which is clearly visible by everyone passing through on 287, is perfect. Hey, it might have cost too much (and the late H.D. Boswell might have hated it), but it looks like a great idea right now.
