I guess this is gonna be on 20/20.

I guess this girl was writing all of the papers for an heiress to the Wal-Mart fortune (Paige Laurie). I feel kinda bad for the other girl who did all of the papers as it seems that she did it to help herself get thru school. Not that what she did was right, but I understand her plight.

I just had to post some Wally world hate for everyone. This 20/20 sounds pretty sweet!

Okay, here's the really amusing (sad) thing. All her family (the Lauries and the Kroenkes) lives in Columbia, MO, my town.

They're pretty driven to build Wal-Marts everywhere around here, needless to say (I've helped stop 2 of them). But we also just built a whole, new expensive basketball arena for the Missouri Tigers, and they name it Paige arena, after that daughter. There was already a whole huge outcry over the name, both because Paige never actually attended school here, and because people don't feel we should our arena after someone simply because they belong to the Wal-Mart family.

Well, after this cheating fiasco, the name has been withdrawn, Thank God, and they're going to pick something else. Personally, I think we should just call it the Plage arena.

Of course, the staggering irony in all this is that people are upset that they wanted to name Missouri's arena after an alleged cheater.
