I second the statement

I second the statement offered by "Anonymous." Operating in 'crisis management mode' is always stressful and emotions tend to hamper the decision-making process. It has been said that we can't roll up our sleeves when we're wringing our hands, so let's roll 'em up! I applaud the MCUSD for recognizing the incoming crisis and starting to plan proactively, even without a clear indication as to how bad it will really be. I have some ideas to offer, however simplistic they may seem: Organized car-pooling to replace buses. Instead of holding class for half a day, five days per week, hold full-day school for or three days per week. Certain students may be able to "tele-commute" as many already do in the business world. There will be no easy solutions, so citizens must now take reality by the horns. The reality is that we can no longer depend our the givernment to take care of our needs. Self-sufficiency and inter-community collaboration is the way to ultimate liberty.

This is so sad. The State of

This is so sad. The State of California hasn't lived within its means for decades and now it has fallen on the most vulnerable people, the students. They have to continue to get by with less and less until now they will have virtually nothing left. But all of the entitlements will go on and on and on. Wake up Californians, throw out the irresponsible legislators and start over!
