Good news

Via Grandpa Eddie concerning Gord's post last week:

AUSTIN, Texas A decorated Marine doesn't qualify as a Texas resident any more because of the time he spent serving in Iraq.

That's what Carl Basham says officials told him when he tried to enroll in Austin Community College.

Eddie has this today:

Former Marine Cpl. Carl Basham is a real Texan.

On Friday, Basham submitted "additional documents" to Austin Community College to meet requirements for a waiver for in-state tuition. Basham was granted in-state status.

The school previously denied Basham the cheaper tuition rate because he lived in Louisiana for a year before joining the military.

I love it when shit works out for somebody who deserves it.
