Add the number of news seats to be absorbed by a pool of already extremely competitive entertainment dollars and you have guaranteed financial issues.
A probable annual deficit SHOULD be a sticking point.
i too am a fan of both plum house and the former fujiya, but for this i wanted to hit up spots i hadn't mentioned before, here's the URL to get to my february 2011 sushi roundup: http://issuu.com/roccitynews/docs/issuu_02-02-11
Hey Anne! Thank you for the question. The answer: I stopped during the Olympics, because God only sees fit to give me televised ice skating once every four years, and I feel obligated to watch it. But I am planning to check out the finalists tonight and see how they do. If I'm inspired I will likely blog the season. If I'm underwhelmed I might opt out. It sounds weird, but blogging "Idol" is seriously a time commitment...
Inquiring minds want to know - are you going to start covering American Idol again? Or are you done with it?
Bring your friends!
Mr. Popper raises some fantastic points here. We don't live in a nation that is poor. We live in one of the wealthiest moments that this country has ever seen. Massive concentrations of wealth exist in very few hands. We don't have a resource problem, we have a distribution problem. Unions are the major way to ensure that wealth is distributed more fairly to working people - who are essential to the creation of that wealth in the first place. If we continue to legislate away workers ability to organize, then we shouldn't be surprised by the growing rates of poverty in our community.
Unions actually worked incredibly well for Detroit. Detroit had nearly 50 years of constant prosperity. What didn't work well for Detroit was free trade deals that aided tens of thousands of manufacturing jobs to move out of country and GM and Ford constantly demanding concession after concession.
Dear Commissioner White,
As I have said to you all along --- this can't just be about "changing how people view this district,” but instead MUST be about doing whatever is necessary in order to actually produce widespread, concrete, measurable, academic, and ultimately socioeconomic, sociopolitical, and sociocultural change and improvement for Rochester City School District students and families --- period.
In my humble, but staunch view, the ONLY way we're going to be able to successfully overcome the "challenges" is by building a deadly-serious, ongoing, MASS-BASED MOVEMENT (substantial numbers of parents, grandparents, students, other relatives, activists, educators, politicians, and anyone else who is serious about much-need, and much-deserved change and improvement --- working together cooperatively, collaboratively, and consistently around clearly-defined, agreed-upon, concrete goals, strategies, and tactics) --- period.
I am --- as you noted --- "cautiously excited" about the possibility that --- as President of the Rochester Board of Education --- YOU are really ready to help provide the type of bold, knowledgeable leadership, which has been missing. All else, in my view, is merely more rhetoric and noise.
Again, if this, or any effort is to be successful --- it CANNOT be viewed as a one-shot-deal. In Order To Produce Widespread, Permanent, Fundamental Change And Improvement --- Ongoing Movement Is Necessary --- Period.
Because unions worked out so well for Detroit!
(*steps on soapbox*) Even though I like the story part and appreciate the efforts to draw attention to mental health issues, I feel like there should be a third part of this series talking about the sheer LACK of resources in Rochester. Putting a list at the bottom doesn't really help. Once someone finally works up the courage to reach out for help, they don't want to be given the runaround. Most of the places listed have a several month waiting list. Most independent psychologists in this area also have waiting lists, and forget even trying to find a psychiatrist for medication management. Everyone I talked to told me to go through my PCP because of the lack of psychiatrists in this area. Also, having to wait several months to see someone can be the difference between someone starting to get better and slitting their wrists. They also don't mention eating disorders and related resources anywhere. Considering ED's are mental disorders and it's NEDA Week, it seems poor form not to call that out somewhere. (*steps off soapboax*)
When my beloved Fujiya closed I was heart broken, but was thrille dto find out that their sushi is still offered at their market down the street: Bento-Ya. Definite staple in our house.
We also revisited the Plum House after a multi year hiatus (moved from Park Ave neighborhood to Webster) and we were really, REALLY pleased with their rolls.
We are huge sushi lovers and you did not list our favorite place, Plum House! Their sushi is excellent and they now offer Ramen which is delicious. This list is great though and gives us some new options to try, as Plum House and Shiki are our go-to places! :)
