    Artist angry over use of work
    I am writing to you about two myths: one, the La Llorona myth and two, the myth that artists live on love and air sandwiches. I know a lot about both.

    Look at school leadership
    Just read in the Optic where the West Las Vegas Superintendent is concerned with the latest district grades.

    His solution is to develop a strategy of improvement by using a data driven scenario. It appears to us that he is leading from behind. One cannot wait for data to move forward. Data must be evaluated on a monthly basis with administration and staff so that immediate solutions can be developed and implemented. One cannot wait from year to year.

    Age makes all the difference
    Adele Zimmerman of Embudo recently wrote the Optic about abortion.  

    She tugged at our heartstrings with compassionate tales of irresponsibility and suffering for non- “affluent” people who’ll not be able to get free or cheap abortions in the future, or so she says.  In contrast, she apparently has no such feelings for dismembered little ones in the womb.

    I guess “age” somehow is the determining factor for Adele.

    Donald Trump and conflicts of interest

    Donald Trump’s quote about the President’s exemption from conflict of interest regulations is an interesting interpretation. 

    But his emphasis is wrong.

    Mr. Trump says the President can’t have a conflict of interest – meaning nothing the President does is a conflict of interest.

    We mere mortals say the President can’t have a conflict of interest­ – meaning that the President must not have a conflict of interest.

    Trump inconsistent
    Donald Trump is backing down on some the most influential parts of his campaign. As president-elect most of his key issues that he intended to address and his plan to do so is beginning to take a back burner as he starts to set up his administration.

    Trump strongly said he would build “impenetrable physical wall on the southern border, on day one. Mexico will pay for the wall.”

    Consider running for WLV school board
    Being a Board of Education member in the West Las Vegas School District should be an honor, not a privilege. The elections are coming around the corner in February and those that choose to challenge must submit their petitions by early December.

    Letters send hope

    Last year, during the Light Parade, people wrote over 100 cards to a small group from many nations whose basic human rights were being violated.

    Abortion will always be available to affluent

    So soon-to-be President Trump would like to outlaw abortions or allow states to do so, if they so choose. Does he understand the consequences?

    Abortion will still be available to those with money — always has, always will. But lower income women will be forced to bear unwanted children.
