The PBS reality show 180 Days that spends a year inside a DC high school has caught the attention of songstress Bette Midler who tweeted "Watched @180days, on @pbs about a school in DC. So moving, and absolutely tragic. American kids who fight every day for any good thing."
One small irony is that the @180days handle belongs to a dormant account with only one tweet: "been moved 2 outside crew which means I clean trash along road so if u c an eerily good-looking guy looking outta place w/chain gang holla!" [PBS; @bettemidler; @180days]
