What's wrong now? The youths of East Palo Alto just buried one of their own? When will this sensless act of violence stop?

Helena and West Helena, Arkansas have cracked down with gun toting deputies carrying
AK 47's and shot guns and put the entire place under a curfew. The ACLU is crying foul
as usual, but at least that city had the guts to do something. Force with force is the way
these creeps will wise up.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
