Re: “[UPDATED] Telephone poll asks about Barnhart, Warren

An improvement over a guy who was instrumental in getting College Town rolling in the South Wedge among other things? She may be a nice choice but it's hard to imagine anyone doing more than Bronson has to improve his district.

Re: “School integration is more than enrichment

Mark, Sorry friend, I live in this district and I find I have to challenge your assertion. These people very much believe that it matters who their child sits next to in school. That is indeed the issue for them. They don't want their kid sitting next to a "city kid". And appealing to the common good is looked upon as a negative argument not a positive one. This is the place where the powers that be fought for exclusionary town prayers, the district has a Good News Club that teaches creationism as an after school program and the most important political issue is the registration of assault rifles. It is sad and ugly, but appealing to reason and the belief that it just can't be that bad and pervasive is simply naive.

Re: “City of the gun

This was an extremely interesting presentation. It did much to dispel the myth that somehow the guns being used in crimes in Rochester are other than those owned by "law abiding" citizens. It turns out about 80% of the guns used here are legally purchased here. And that doesn't even touch on the number of children injured every year by the mishandling and improper storage of guns.
