Missing some faculties

I've wondered what kind of people devote their days to lining a fence in anticipation for the arrival and departure of a procession of black SUV's. One answer:
SANTA MARIA, Calif. — Michael Jackson has his own personal cheerleading squad.

His supporters cheer him loudly every time he appears at the courthouse for his child-molesting trial.

The fans are devoted to Jackson, and many have given up a great deal to be near him during his ordeal.

His supporters' days begin long before sunrise. They are kept outside a chain-link fence as TV crews warm their lights and set the stage for a show the King of Pop would rather cancel.

"I was a kindergarten teacher for 13 years, and I resigned to be out here," said supporter Sheree Wilkins.
Dedication. Whatever kindergarten Sheree abandoned is better off for her absence. So committed to teacheing children was she that after 13 years of what I can only imagine was sincere and inspired teaching, she resigns to take a full time un-paid internship waving from across a parking lot to a stranger accused of molesting little boys.
