Don't like long bus rides?

Posted By on Wed, May 17, 2006 at 6:15 AM

Move closer to school. It's the suggestion from a state transportation official in this look by Stephens Media at the Asa Hutchinson-induced hysteria over closure of the inefficient, inadequate Paron High School. It also happens that no state has fixed rules on bus rides, just some suggested limits that are unavoidably unattainable for some rural areas all across the U.S. Moreover, a long bus ride does not equal a lack of adequate education. And do you have any idea how many schools you'd have to build if bus rides were the cornerstone of the definition of equal education?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
