This is a United Kingdom story caused by a baby boom there in 2006. I'm not sure if we have similar demographics in the U.S. It's interesting how demographers so often get things wrong. According to them, we in the U.S. were supposed to have a baby boom in the 1970s, but much to their surprise the Boomers postponed having kids until the mid 80's and 90's!

Like it or not, the world is moving in the direction of the 1973 movie, "Soylent Green". We'll all probably be turned into "green wafers" for the Elite to eat!

Education is another indirect casualty of the war in Iraq, our bloated military budget, and Reagan and Bushs' tax cuts for the richest Americans
