Cause for hope

Posted By on Sat, Apr 28, 2007 at 4:13 PM

While many of you were taking advantage of a splendid Saturday, I'm happy to report that the students of Parkview High's state championship Quiz Bowl team, supported by teachers, parents and volunteers, put on a benefit Quiz Bowl tournament for middle schools today at Parkview. They raised money to contribute to famine relief in Darfur and gave a lot of smart kids a workout on some tough questions on everything from the periodic table to Harry Potter.

I moderated the final rounds, which put two teams of lightning fast whiz kids from Trinity Junior High in the championship game. I promised to plug the event here. Believe it or not, some of the Parkview Quiz Bowlers are dedicated blog readers.

  • 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.
