Home Town Pride, Jeremy Lin & Others

We are all used to the fact that HP was a Palo Alto startup and Facebook had its headquarters based in Palo Alto for years. We know we have Stanford University to help put us on the map.

This adulation is out of control. I hope he goes on to excel in something that is actually important.

Agreed, 'too much'

This hype is based after seven games. SEVEN.

I'm sure he's a great kid/young man. That's great.

But it's way over the top. As if 99% of the fans had anything to do with his success.

I agree some of the media hype is way over the top, but nevertheless I think we can be proud of one of our own making it to the top of his chosen field.

For those of us who remember him in Paly, and for all of us who do our bit to make the Palo Alto community vibrant and supportive of all our youth, it is nice to be able to congratulate one of our own.

This is not about sport for the sport fans because it extends further than that. It is about hometown pride.

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.
