A little relief for the pack mule in you
Why do school kids these days carry backpacks bigger than themselves? My proposed solution is to eliminate homework altogether before we create whole generations of people who will need back surgery before the age of 20. But since I'm unlikely to get anywhere with this proposal, I'm buying my kid a pack that will at least distribute the 30 pounds of books she carries more evenly so that she doesn't look like Quasimodo when she graduates from high school. This Uptown Mule by Azora, available only in black, comes assembled with its load bearing frame for $189.99, and was designed for urban professionals. I only wish it came in other colors.
