Hmm, might be interesting.<br><br>
But how important is it to write<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">She got a check for $100,000 and promptly bought about a dozen more pairs of shoes.<br>
"I got these shoes because they're purple and I didn't have purple yet," she explained.</div>
</div>

Sounds like a solution so obvious that only a kid could have thought of it.<br><br>
Good work kid. It will be interesting to see if this works.<br><br>

I agree about the shoes. I read that and thought, "where the hell does that fit in?"

The writer was trying to show how typical she was, as if to create an "ironic" contrast in the article. Said writer didn't pull it off well.

i find it very interesting that a teen, my age, can come up with a cure for something adults haven't come up with. She gives me hope that this little world still has some life in it.

I hope it does, and I hope she socked (no pun intended) away for college as well as shoes.

Perhaps the prize should have been an all-expenses paid university education, instead <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">
