Nothing like getting an early start on the entitlement cycle.

It's not necessary or productive to always be negative. This program was open to any kid that walked in the door, without economic qualification. The bank supports it as a public relations effort. New school supplies tend to give young children an early interest in starting the school year. Of course it takes a lot more to keep the process moving forward. Encouraging children to enjoy learning in no way supports an entitlement cycle.

Gotta start early programing these kids to come in for the free toaster.

Mom and Dad can't afford pencils; they spent all their money on a 62" plasma high-definition TV.
