When students from Poland, Maine were bused to Westbrook High School in the late-1990s and early-2000s (the Androscoggin County town was constructing a high school of its own at the time), their school buses--which were decked out with tinted windows and a spoiler--were a cause of envy, but also supplied fodder for ridicule for us Paper City kids.
The last laugh is on us, though, considering Westbrook may be one step closer to requiring bullet-proof (BB-proof?) school buses.
On a serious note, this is not the first time a Westbrook school bus carrying young children has attracted a dangerous projectile, though my memory is foggy when it comes to the particulars. So here's to a media outlet fleshing out this story with a little background.
