Overview

"I tell you she's dangerous. She may have to be eliminated." Zac growled.
Maggie looked hard at Susan Jones. Her short skirt and high heels made her long legs look even longer. She was "dressed for success" in a tan suit and white blouse with matching accessories. The blouse was stretched to bursting and giving the impression of more curves than was reasonable.
"She is dangerous all right, but I don't think that you could get away with eliminating her. Everyone knows that she's a staff writer for Downtown magazine and that she's here to do a hit piece on the Academy."
"I'm afraid that the Professor is in over his head."
"Maybe, but don't sell Doctor Robertson short there's a lot more to him than she knows."
"How can she say anything bad about the Academy anyway? We have the highest attendance rate, the highest graduation rate, the highest SAT scores, the most students going on to post secondary education, and we even have competitive athletic teams. What's bad about that?"
"It's not what we do Zac, it's how we do it that some people question. We are very selective about who we admit, we use only the best instructors from all over the world, and we have two mentors in every classroom."
"But most students only pay $300 a month to go to school here."
"Some pay much, much more."
"And some pay nothing. It averages out. Anyway you cut it; this is the best high school in America."
"I won't argue with that. It may be the best high school in the world, and that's why Downtown magazine is here. Some people just can't stand heroes and they have to try to tear down anything that's bigger than life. If you're too good or you do too much Downtown magazine comes after you and they generally dig up some dirt somewhere."
"She is too dangerous. She will have to be eliminated. Malls can be dangerous places. She might have an accident."
"Zac, let's just see how this goes. The Academy has classes in the mall because it's a safe and desirable place. Let's not ruin that."
