Children in need

Posted By on Fri, Nov 14, 2008 at 9:06 AM

Since the item has moved on down the blog list and most people won't see it, I'd like to call attention to a reader comment added this morning to the report of the arrest of a woman whose infant children were found in her apartment without a sitter while she worked at a hotel.

I can't verify the commenter, of course, but the comment has the ring of credibility. At a minimum, it notes some of the factors that could contribute to an episode such as this. It'as also a reminder about how hard life can be for people with families trying to scrape by on low-wage jobs. The comment is at the end of the string. Those who made harsh judgments are particularly urged to take a look.

  • 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.
