That's because they're talking about a random sampling (done by a well-established survey group) while you're talking about your email echo chamber. The farce is comparing the two as similar.

I'm a graduate of a local suburban school district but choose to send our child to a private school. But the district is still required to provide transportation if possible (we do still pay school taxes). When we took advantage of that, we watched as our child and 2 or 3 others in the same situation were picked up by one of the half-sized buses every day. My pleas to the district for a more efficient way to transport these kids fell on deaf ears. We requested some kind of credit if we transported our child ourselves. No process for that. There was zero interest in the district considering minivans or any other more efficient way to operate. This year the district offered a daily ride on that same bus that would've included a transfer at one point to yet another bus (all for 3-4 children) that we felt was too much for a small child with a backpack and likely toting a band instrument. We drive ours in now. You're welcome, Local Public School District
There needs to be a Great Enlightening to occur to get these components of the public school system to open their eyes and think outside their little 20th century boxes. And passing it off to mass transit is not an option.

Thank you Ms. Schimpf for what you and your group do. I never needed the services of an organization like yours but still you and SCAP are heroes in my eyes.

That's not the final road surface, is it? Please say there's another coat of something to go over what right now feels like a gravel road. I give this whole project a "C" as yet another gateway to Schenectady falls to incompetence (the first being the Stanford Mansion). Let's hope Erie Blvd. lives up to the hype.

And then there's all that turf to protect...

"Chairing the panel is IBM executive Stanley Litow, the company’s vice president of corporate citizenship and corporate affairs. Other members include state Sen. John Flanagan, R-Nassau County, chairman of the Senate Education Committee, and Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan, D-Manhattan, chairwoman of the Assembly Education Committee."
And as far as I can find out, not a single actual Educator among them. What could go wrong?

I don't think the food supply's in any more danger with a health clinic present. Sick people go in and out of the supermarkets everyday. Maybe this can help reduce the number.
My issue is why just Price Chopper? Was Hannaford asked? Were any of the other markets asked? How many of our public libraries? There're numerous opportunities to inject health care into the public stream. This one looks more like a win-win for bucks than anything else. Mr. Golub, how does it feel to profit on people's hardships?

Why, oh why do we give sugar a pass?
One hand clapping for CVS. Baby steps.
