Let's see.....How long has the mayor, city council and RCSD board been Democrat?
The same with most other large NE cities, including Detroit.
Stop it. The "war on poverty" has only produced more poverty. Stop "helping" so much.
Of course these anti poverty programs have made 1000's in the Washington DC area rich. The counties around DC are the richest in the country, and the federal government keeps churning out "program" after "program", and none of them help. That's wasted money that should be left in everyone's pocket.
Good to hear that taboo subjects are on the table. Here are a couple.
One, address the epidemic of sexual immorality and bastardy that accounts for so many children living in poverty. We must deal with men who refuse to support their children. Those who are unemployable should be conscripted and put to work on all those "shovel-ready" projects that liberals are always yammering about.
Two, abolish the godless, wasteful, archaic and destructive government school monopoly. That's the only education "reform" that will improve the lives of poor families.
Mental illness: smashing the stigma
You could not persuade me to direct a “stigma,” I find it offensive that you do. (See rape/stigma for why.)
It matters that you direct a stigma on your pages. Women ordered us to stop directing it at rape, you continue victimizing another group, the lesson somehow lost.

Such a waste of money and time. This is progress and the Eastman house is showing anything but progressive ideals. Use the money for this lawsuit and paint the front of the Eastman house. It is in dire need of repair.
Sorry, passed laws
This study is misleading. It compares the poverty level in the city of Rochester which has 35 square miles to cities which were able to annex their suburbs and include areas that encompass several hundred square miles.
Older cities in the Northeast passes laws years ago preventing them from expanding.
To be a fair comparison you would have to compute the poverty rate for Rochester and include the inner suburbs because most other cities on the list have spread their city limits out to include them.
A friend of mine is a member. She said they sent a letter out about a year ago begging for more money because they needed to cover operational expenses. And yet they can afford a stupid, frivolous lawsuit? I hope their membership drops like flies.
Eastman House, you just lost a member.
