2. If you're going to cite something from another thread,
How about quoting it?

He came back to the voucher thing a couple of times because folks asked him about it in the Q&A. He said what we really need to do is help the public schools out. Were not against school choice but the ones who dont have the resources that allow them to make a choice are the ones that need the educational help the most and they will be the ones who will get left behind if we dont focus on fixing whats wrong with the public schools and giving them the resources they need. He spoke of how, when in the military, they pushed and pushed Congressman Jerry Lewis until they finally got a new school built in Ft. Irwin, CA. Also, he mentioned that hed been asked to be superintendent of school system in CA when hed gotten out of the military (which I dont think I knew) and that, though hed turned it down, he did spend a lot of time learning about the California public school system and then he ticked off about 6 or 7 things that were wrong and needed to be changed.
