Cave dwellers

The city of Flagstaff proposes an innovative solution to problems of housing, pollution, education, policing, and all other community ills. The city plans to house citizens in caves.


"Flagstaff Unified School District Superintendent Kevin Brownout sees the new community in the forest as a potential location for a magnet school for Future Foresters of America, in collaboration with Northern Arizona University's School of Forestry.

"Magnet cave schools are FUSD's answer to stemming the flow of students to the charter schools while saving money on heat and electricity, Brownout said. At the very least, he said losing the children in the forest would keep them from going to school elsewhere. "

So it's no longer April 1 and I'm a little slow on the draw, but it's a humorous read even after the fact.
