As clever a writer as you can be Rick, your constant reach to use Sarah Palin as a punchline is weak at best. She continues to fade out of the publics eye and with all the morons in DC she is the best you can come up with? C'mon! If anyone is a "one trick pony" its Obama who was elected yet who has shown no knack whatsoever to be a President. Might as well of won "American Idol" since it was a popularity contest anyway. But I digress, Rick, you can do better. Spare us the lame jokes on Palin and get with the times!
I have a daughter with special needs and luckily she does not need a service animal. I was appalled to read this article and see how those at Doherty responded in such a closed-minded and ignorant way. There was plenty of room for compromise in this situation in regards to the teacher and the student and ways for schedules to be manipulated to avoid her exposure to the dog. What a sad state of affairs to see this poor boy not only lose his loving companion but his desire to continue his education. The staff of D-11 and Doherty in particulare should be ashamed of themselves. My daughter will not be attending Doherty is this is how they treat kids with special needs. God Bless you Veren.
the comment about Doug Bruce is priceless!
My how the attack has changed. The Dems now attack those who disagree with them and their "Dear Leader." This bill is the continuing attack on our freedoms and another advance down the road of socialism in this country. Read the bill and get the facts, even the CBO says this is a bad bill! Don't be lead by DEM or GOP talking points, READ the bill and discover it is BAD for this country! BTW, illegals already get free healthcare and will continue too. They use our emergency rooms as thier personal doctors rooms now.
What is really sad about this situation is that many of those in attendance likely voted against the tax increase. Guess what, you can't have all these nice things in this city and not expect to have to pay for it. Too many people in this town believe we have to live within our means, and not raise taxes. Well, that isn't going to work in this climate today. You either pay for the services you want or you lose them. Unfortunately not enough people were willing to part with a few extra dollars a year to maintain fire and police service, parks, transportation, etc. That is a shame,and it rests on the citizens of this city. You get what you asked for.
