[update, 2 Feb 2006:Â I regret to inform you of the death of SB 2514.Â SB 2514 led a short life, and died quietly in committee in Jackson, Mississippi.Â The family requests no flowers.Â Please send donations to the homeschooling charity of your choice who, undoubtedly, have planned a Dixieland funeral for SB 2514.]
