School bus stops at XXX store

Nashville's tax dollars at work:
Children who live in the Dellway Villa apartment complex get to make daily visits to a nearby toy store — the site of their school bus stop — but it is not the toy store where their parents buy them Christmas presents. It is, rather, Jenna’s Adult Toy Box at 2531 Dickerson Pike, a little north of Trinity Lane, which opened there a year and a half ago, replacing a window tint shop.
According to Metro Nashville Public Schools spokesman Woody McMillan:
Further, “It would be just physically impossible to have a bus to go to every child’s home and pick them up. So in a city area, what you do is you try to [stop at] a connecting street where you can pick up the largest number of children as possible.” “So the next thing would be to find another location where those kids could walk to. And then [the situation] becomes a parent issue — ‘Do I want my kid walking maybe a half a mile to another location, or do I want him to walk a hundred yards or so here.’”
Good work, Woody. God forbid the kids should get a little exercise. Just dump 'em off at Phalluses-R-Us.
