  1. The reason that there is no money at LAUSD is because of the amounts to pay off all of the failed superintendents they have gotten rid of. Mark Twain was right about school boards. But, on the other hand, there are more ‘gifted’ students in China than ALL students in the USA, especially here in L.A..

  2. Why aren’t there mature trees at the York Park? The park looks like something I’d see on the Flintstones in Bedrock.
    Whose bright idea was the blue and orange etc…ground covering at the park? Why couldn’t we just keep it simple, with earthtones colors? I can’t believe the community voted for such a park! Who hijacked the park’s design and changed the aesthetics?

  3. Why, why, why can’t parks just be nature???? Why does the New York Park have to look like an outdoor Chuck E. Cheese?????
