Some things matter, some things don't

Pet adoption rules are sensible, not ridiculous
Letter by Iris Frank

Fueled up and fuming
The following editorial appeared in Friday's edition of the Orlando Sentinel:

Oil prices shouldn't affect budget discipline
The fluctuating world oil price situation is wreaking havoc down South on pump prices, yet at the same time boosting Alaska's revenue to unprecedented levels.

Word of mouth

Lack of service in service economy
If Alan Greenspan really wants to do something to keep the economy from going south, he can stop looking for ways to sabotage the stock market and start looking for ways to solve the real problem: Getting the unemployment rate back up to a healthy 10 percent or 12 percent where it belongs.

Word of mouth
The low grades on the high school qualifying exam is certainly a wake-up call for the state. But we shouldn't blame the teachers. All the teachers I know do the best they can with the large number of students they work with. What needs to change is our whole theory about personalization and the ability for teachers to really work with students. I would hate to see the state take the easy way out and blame the teachers.
