I think that forgetting the baby's in the back seat is about the same as forgetting to take your lunch out of the back seat. You'll want either/both eventually, but when you get to work at 8:00am, neither one is on your immediate to-do list.

If dropping off students in any certain area is not safe, why is it permitted? In the photo accompanying the article, there is a crosswalk fifty feet from the students. What, they couldn't use that one?

If I didn't let my cat go outdoors, she'd dig through the wall. She's far better equipped than I to spend time outdoors. In her heart she is a lioness on the savannah. She's always in at night, and most of the time when I'm not home. She has the best of all possible worlds in the middle of fifty acres where she doesn't get into other people's gardens, doesn't bother anybody except the rodent population, and she gets vetted frequently.

From: Some experts say cats shouldn't be allowed outside. What do you think?

The original question didn't mention people on public assistance, so the presumption is that everyone would be subject to the government's oversight. There are already laws that address animal neglect/cruelty . . . adding another law limiting the number of pets a person/household may own would be redundant.

I think if I saw my neighbors being evacuated, I would not wait for somebody to come knocking on my door to tell me to leave.
It's a terrible thing everywhere, but it isn't anybody's fault. No government entity made it rain so hard.

"While local government officials are ex-officio members of the REDC, the majority of the active members are from the business, technology, economic development, academic and nonprofit worlds."
Since local governments are the bodies that approve or disapprove projects, it behooves those tax-paid officials to involve themselves in developing this "strategic plan" for the region.
