As someone who installs a lot of 802.11 (aka Wi-fi) networks, I was surprised Martha Winsten's letter about Wi-fi being dangerous. This is the first I heard of it. Turns out, that's because it's completely false. I was also surprised to hear that Saratoga Springs is just now installing Wi-fi, as every school district with a budget has likely had Wi-fi for the past 10 years. Turns out, they're just upgrading their current system with more access points and a faster/more modern connection. Wi-fi is already ubiquitous. Being concerned about it at schools is like being concerned about water fountains, because it's possible to overdrink and make yourself sick. It won't happen. There is absolutely nothing to worry about. If anything, one should be far more concerned about cell phones (which talk to towers miles away) next to your body for hours every day, than Wi-fi routers (whose signal only reaches a few hundred feet) on the other side of the room every once in a while.

People who want the guy in jail for a long time- you do realizing that it's costing you, the taxpayers, $50,000-$60,000 per year to put someone in jail, right? http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-3445_162-574... A suggestion of 25 years for this guy means we the taxpayers spend $1.5 million on him. There's gotta be a better way.

Sandra... when you say "The programs are overseen by federal judges and Congress."... do you really believe that, or are you just repeating what the government says? I recommend everyone take a listen to the latest Dan Carlin "Common Sense" podcast. Direct link to the MP3 here - http://traffic.libsyn.com/dancarlin/cswd...

I recommend anyone who is interested in the story of Edward Snowden, listen to the latest episode of Common Sense. I think you'll find everything he says on the subject to be... common sense. http://traffic.libsyn.com/dancarlin/cswd...

Not that I completely disagree with you Carolyn, but a family with 4 kids where each parent makes $47,000 isn't quite living on Easy St. Hopefully they're not offered as much help as families who make twice as much, but I can see some cases where they genuinely could use help with insurance through no fault of their own.

I've got to support the teacher here. This assignment teaches critical thinking and the understanding of others' points of views. Nowhere does it say "this is how you should think." It's scary watching the closed-minded people react to this. When kids grow up, they're going to have to learn that there are people out there who think differently. Vilifying the teacher teaches the student that it's wrong to think differently and they should be punished for it. While the teacher is teaching "First understand where the other side is coming from". I stand by the teacher.
