If he showed you a receipt for a new Mustang, would that make it a deductible education expense ------------- he needed to drive to school.  Was the computer required as part of the curriculum?

ex-AllStar, ex-Lutefisk taste taster, ex-ACME product tester
and ex marks the spot where those rocks and anvils hit me.
