Alan King was once informed that his children could not attend a local school. King was not amused. "We live directly across the street," he complained, "and my boys can't attend! We don't live in the zone! It's right across the street! I can spit on the school from my front door, which I've done on several occasions. They tell me the zone line runs through my house. According to the school board, if my kids slept in the garage, they could go to that school. My kids sleep in the garage? In my house I sleep in the garage!"
