About "Equal Access" and a new advisory council for people with disabilities:
"Disability awareness is two fold; not only should the general public be enlightened, but people with disabilities should have access to information and resources, too. Some violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act are unintended and inadvertent, but others are deliberate and stem from indifference and (in some cases) downright malice."
About "Is the City Council Anti-Education? Short Answer: No":
"Public education has existed in this country for 200 years. While not perfect, [it has been] an incredible mechanism for prosperity in this nation's history. And the fascist reactionary right wing would love to do away with it completely. Ultimately, what they want is to live in an American version of Pakistan." — packrat
About "Nearly 100 Seats on City Boards Are Vacant":
"I would be happy to chair the Adult Entertainment Advisory Commission." — jeff
About "Letter from the Editor" and the country's — and city's — financial crisis:
"Why in the hell are we starting school in early, or even mid, August? How much money would be saved by MCS by simply not having to turn on 138 (is that still the right number of schools?) or so A/C systems?" — mad_merc
