So, Mom doesn't want Junior to go to Arkansas. Not to defame that fine state, but frankly I could see a lot of Moms not wanting their kids to spend four years in Arkansas. Fayetteville ain't exactly the cradle of civilization, even if President Nixon did helicopter in for a game there once.

I can just see Junior now, stomping off, slamming his bedroom door, letting loose with the universal teenager's lament: "You are ruining my LIFE!"
