Whenever I cross the 45th parallel, I kind of geek out. I don't know why. Maybe it's because it's a reminder of how much there is to see out in the world. Maybe it's because the sign is a physical testament that I'm in new surroundings. Maybe it's Michigan pride coming through. Where can you get a decent picture next to a 45th parallel sign?
15-year-old James Mond is being forced by his mother to stand on various Tampa, Florida street corners with a sign that details his poor GPA and bad score on an achievement test.
The sign encourages motorists to "Honk if I need an education."
Rhoda Holder says James will have to perform this task for a week, and believes her tough love will prevent her child from becoming a drop out.
