A little birdy just told me they asked Iberville about their shadow schools issue, and they were old MSA East is the same school as Iberville East (Elementary and High.)  I guess I’ve just never been to a school more than 4 miles long.  I suppose there could be more underground than is obvious to satellite photos.  If Iberville […]

Creationism Vs Evolution Vs Intelligent Design? Lets Solve this!
