    Not able to attend the meeting at the library this evening, but I’d love to know what the WS SPD is doing about the ongoing issue of kids mugging students on their way to Westwood Village.

      Can you give more info on what you know?  That is disturbing and I’d like to pass the info on.

    It’s so encouraging to see brave young people involved in the process.  My two high schoolers are prepared to walk out of class tomorrow, depending on tonight’s results.

      Keith- what does walking out of school based on election results prove, and how is that brave? Not sure what you are saying, apologies if I am misunderstanding.

        Choosing to believe this is an actual conversation between Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez.

        Not trying to put words in Keith’s mouth but I have heard the following idea discussed. Children and adolescents under legal voting age are unheard and unrepresented in our current political system. They are dependent upon the adults in their area to act in their best interest when making decisions about who should be in the government. A person who does not have the right to vote but feels that those who do are not acting in their or the country’s best interest may feel it necessary to vocalize their disapproval and discontent with the system in some way. Protests are often an effective measure of doing so. 

    • Um, No! November 6, 2018 (3:05 pm)

      So your kids are going to walk out of school if “their side” whichever that is doesn’t win?  Is that what I’m understanding?    What sense does that make?  Maybe teaching your children to accept the winner of a legitimate election process would be more helpful?  “Outrage”  will only get you so far in life.  There is always going to be a winner and looser.   Sometimes you have to deal with being the looser.

        and a poor speller!

        • Um, no! November 6, 2018 (6:03 pm)

          Clearly I’m a wiener………   Dang phone auto correct.  LOL!

    Outrage propelled women and black people to fight for the right to vote. Outrage can be a very effective tool to create needed change.

    If there is always a looser does that mean there is also always a tighter
