Obama's visit: The Grass is always greener

Someone who attended the Obama event today sent over this picture from the front of Dobson High School. What you are looking at is brand new turf installed just for the President's visit. If you look beyond the statue, you can see protestors in the background and the old grass that is yellow and dead, which is how its supposed to be be right now in Arizona.

Now that the hype is over, perhaps some one should ask how the school could afford this when they are facing $10 million in cuts as it is. Maybe they will take it out of their stimulus money.

Anyway, congratulations once again to Mesa and Dobson High School for your day in the spotlight. For those who were unable to attend the event, here is the text of the President's speech and here is a slide show of photos from inside the event.
