A few days ago, Ron Paul came to town. I motored downtown to attend his event. As I walked into the venue, I thought, "Damn! I forgot to bring my camera!" OK! I didn't get a picture of him.

So, I am a college student who receives barley enough financial aid to cover for my living and schooling. It is summer now and I could not find a summer job STILL, because I live in Missoula MT. Anyway, I was denied for SNAP benifets because I don't work a minimum of 20 hours a week or do work study program which requires FAFSA to be completed in Febuary. Unfortunately even though I havent lived with my parents in years, I cannot complete FAFSA without their tax info.
