Re: “Anger and dismay over Rochester teachers' contract boil over

Has there ever been an incident where a 8 year old child has been criminally charged for running down the hall?

Re: “New ad campaign touts Rochester -- or Warren?

Mayor Warren's first year in office did not go as one would hope it to go. Speedgate, cronyism, the war on the homeless, trying to lead a protest on the Ferguson development, the lakefront controversy, the FB scandal, her recent non-support for fellow Democrats. A lot of damage control is needed here if she wants a future in politics. This is quite obviously a campaign ad.
I really wanted this mayor to succeed and bring fresh new ideas to the table. It's going to take a lot for me to climb back up the hill that she pushed me off of.

Re: “Feedback 9/23

Just put my "Bernie 2016" bumper sticker on my car! He has been almost totally ignored by mainstream media while the Trump/Clinton show has been rammed down our throats by the monied interest mega-corporate TV companies. Bernie is very alive and thriving on social media.

Re: “This Christian nation: the immigrant children

There is a statue in the New York harbor that beckons , "Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses yearning to be free." Back in the early twentieth century, tens of thousands of Italians and Sicilians passed beneath this statue, most undocumented, they had no papers. The immigration officers posted the letters WOP (without papers), on their applications. The derogatory name stuck, but they came, they worked hard, they became good citizens and added to the American culture. I, of Irish heritage, ended up marrying one of the descendants of that mass migration of undocumented immigrants.
Perhaps the statue, if it has become irrelevant, should be torn down. Scrap copper is at a premium these days.
