In full Tonic spirit, let's learn something and try to make something positive out of this. Last night, a friend of mine (he wants to remain anonymous) sent me a link to a CNN article on Constance and, expectedly, was appalled at the situation.

He wants to fund the prom. In fact, he's going to match, dollar for dollar, the first $25,000 we raise for the prom. Anything not spent will go to fund a scholarship.

Spread the word. Let's throw Constance and all the cool kids in Fulton a party they'll never forget. If you're willing to help, send a non-tax-deductible donation to this Paypal Account and we'll sort it out.
