The ABC's of School Choice

I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Our school districts have open borders, so parents can choose whatever school they like, providing there is room after looking after the students from the school's designated area. It works beautifully. This is a city with a very diverse ethnic population. Sometimes solutions are very simple. Lois Halls.
If this community does not vaccinate, it should be checked to see how many cases of autism there are. It would seem to be a control group for this question. Autism now strikes one in forty two boys. What is the cause? If it was indeed the MMR vaccine, they would never admit it, lest everyone stop vaccinating for everything. There are two autistic boys in my extended family, and we would like some real answers. Lois Halls
I live in Alberta Canada, which is a huge oil producer. A few ducks (about ten) were caught in a tailing pond, and the resulting outcry was country wide, perhaps international. How is it that ten ducks are a tragedy and thousands of birds and bats are killed by their windmills, and no one seems to report or even notice. What hypocrisy!
The UKIP party is partlcularly incensed because of the pampering of muslims. The police more or less stood by after that soldier was beheaded and the perpetrators stood there and boasted. They say they "want their country back". I don't blame them.
Pet "coy"???Did you perhaps mean "koi"? Lois, Edmonton, Canada
I use Bing. They give me lots of pretty and interesting pictures on the screen, and as far as I can tell, are apolitical. Lois
I understand that Cuomo is a Catholic. He should be excommunicated. Lois

Greatest Generation the Most Entitled

I am part of the greatest generation. The war was no picnic for any of us. We had rationing, and one fathers were gone for six years (I am Canadian). We were also children of the great depression, which was a difficult time for our parents. We were brought up with a work ethic, and a pay as you go ethic. We have never owed money except for our mortgage. We also paid for our own college educations, and that of our children. We have not been a drain on our government. Lois

Glamor Swims With Sharks at the Oscars

Yeah, and the C.I.A. were not the big heroes of this event. It was the Canadian Embassy who rescued the Americans, got them Canadian passports, and dreamed up the escape plan, aided by the C.I.A. Not one breath of this was in the movie Argo. Lois

Argo is historically inaccurate. It was a Canadian embassy who rescued those people, got them Canadian passports, and planned how to get them out. Affleck never even gave a nod to Canada in his movie. Lois
