Hi Lynne -- How did I miss this the first time around? (Thsi time via Chris.) My very bad -- would Miley say that? I don't really know her, but you're making me curious. Good to hear your original and humorous voice. Continuous happy spring. -- M. ...(full comment)

Impala, this white ARPS parent completely disagrees. You cannot separate the two, and you should not trivialize this as an issue isolated to "adult bathroom graffiti". Racism is ugly, and it is real, and it hurts all of us. Disavowing it or burying our collective head in the sand does not make it go away. What happens to a teacher in an educational setting affects our children, particularly the kind of victimization that took place this last year. Imagine that you're a child growing up in the Amherst school system, a minority student, already aware of and perhaps even a victim of racism. You feel vulnerable, you feel perhaps your own education & opportunities in life will be thwarted and confined, irrespective of your talents and potential, and then you see one of the few minority teachers (and potential allies/mentors) harassed and driven out of the school by nasty racist remarks from schoolmates. This cannot and should not be swept under the carpet, nor should any adult indulge in the fantasy that what happens to a teacher has no affect on the students, our children. ...(full comment)

Special Coverage: A year of racial tension in Amherst schools boils over

Oh Pasqual, I think you're full of so many good ideas and viewpoints. I'm thankful you and John can formulate such good satire. Just magnificent. I think Obama has been the best, most transparent and qualified president, ever. Why, many would just like to do away with the whole two-term thing and just have him go on forever. I was really hoping for a change like that. Thank you, dear Pasqual. ...(full comment)

John Sheirer: Why we must stop the excesses of this liberal president!

Nah, that's too much. But maybe we can make 9/12 Teach "Freedom" How to Read Day? Oh, also, you know the articles on The Onion are parody too, right? And that Stephen Colbert is not actually a right wing pundit? Did I just blow your mind? ...(full comment)

Oh Pasqual, You're so smart and superior. Everyone should be like you! In fact, I think 9/11 should be "Pasqual Day" in your honor. ...(full comment)

Elizabeth Rockett Volkmann: Let yourself get bitten by the Northampton High soccer bug

It's so hard to tell when people are being sarcastic online. Especially when so many people's views have become a parody of themselves. I am not 100% sure if "freedom" realizes that this column was a parody, and is trying to be cute. Or maybe they really have such a short attention span that they didn't get to the punchline at the end. Given "freedom's" previous posts, I sort of doubt that they have the brain power for the former. But I really hope I'm wrong. ...(full comment)

Hey, You were right on until the part about religion. Obama is a poor leader and bad for this country. ...(full comment)

John Sheirer: Why we must stop the excesses of this liberal president!

Oh please, casting stones are you? Everything you spew as well as the "good" doctor in his articles spew are nothing but disdain towards our president and those of us who voted for him, which by the way is the majority of Americans, not only once but twice. Stop being a sore loser, and support our great country as we have had to with the past president before him. ...(full comment)

So if you disagree with Obama you are a confederate racist? Typical liberal hatefull garbage. We hear this like a broken record. ...(full comment)

I entirely agree with the opinion expressed in this article, but I would like to make one correction. Access to medical marijuana is not by "prescription." Doctors certify patients to use medical marijuana by writing a certification letter, which is a brief statement that the doctor believes that the possibility of benefit outweighs the possibility of harm for marijuana use to treat a debilitating condition. This is not a prescription. A prescription, which you take to the pharmacy, is written under a federal prescribing license, and federal law does not allow for marijuana use. There is a lot of confusion, even among medical people, about whether marijuana is prescribed. It is not prescribed. ...(full comment)
