Good News

January 1, 2003

Glad to hear that so many of our so-called allies are upset about our going after mass murderer Saddam Hussein. Funny how the same mental-type, anti-war people were saying back 70 years ago that we should "work" with Hitler, Stalin, etc. etc. Get real folks.

Dear Departed

January 1, 2003

Honoring the dead is an obligation of all of us, but its getting out of hand on the streets of Dearborn with all the tacky wreaths and crosses crowding the highways and byways. In fact, its gotten so bad that local teenagers have taken to calling Dearborn "Deadbone".

Congratulations to Joe Hallissey for his recent appointment as Executive Director of the Office of Development at Henry Ford Community College.

Congratulations Joe Hallissey.

January 5, 2003

See where the state of New York is looking intowhether or not city school boards are really necessaryand whether or not they're doing a good job hiringdistrict superintendents. Some local wags think thatNew Yorks "got it right".

James Schoolmaster, Dearborn School Board member responds...

"City school boards are only necessary if you believe in local control of school districts. I also question an individuals belief in democracy if they are willing to give up control of their schools."

Stop, Look, and Listen

January 12, 2003

Dearborn Council President Jack O'Reilly tells me heis concerned about the number of drivers in our citywho are running red lights and stop signs, not tomention double parking. Jack's solution: Get Tough.Issue more tickets and tell our "liberal" judges tostop letting first time offenders off the hook. Goodidea Jack. Go get 'em.

A Reader Responds...

Russ,
Speaking of parking, how about those residents, who can't pull all the way up into their driveways and end up blocking the sidewalk. It is especially tough on those seniors and people in wheel chairs and such. Those fines should be doubled.
