No wonder he's such a bitter racist asshole.
When was he racist? The only people he's ever been racist against are the French, but that's fine: they deserve it. They're French.
Also, I'm a little jealous. My boarding school didn't have an equestrian center. We had a rowing team, archery fields, a fully-featured arcade, not one but two buildings designed by IM Pei, and the most expensive squash courts in the Ten Schools, but no horses.
Well, we did have horses, but they were stashed waaaaay off campus, on alumni expense, and hardly anyone used them. Having a pony farm right there, maybe up by the old dairy fields, would have been sweet. The British take their boarding schools far more seriously than the Americans do, both in terms of facilities and discipline, and it shows.
What exactly is a "public" boarding school? Does that mean it's tax payer funded?
It's a British thing. "Public" means it is open to anyone who can pay (as opposed to the older medieval church or guild schools); they are not tax-funded, and are instead the equivalent of "private" or "prep" schools here in the States.
