Actually, we get on very well together
Original post made by Parent on Feb 2, 2007
Maybe underneath we do have opinions we would rather keep to ourselves. Maybe that is why the majority of us would remain anonymous in this forum. Maybe we are scared of being "found out". I can only say that for those of us reading this forum on a regular basis, I am very happy that these opinions are kept to ourselves. It seems that when someone gets annoyed about something they appear to be sitting at this forum constantly and replying to a comment almost instantaneously. So do it here, rather than in a more public arena.
So, to all of us, please continue to be the nice people I meet around town. Yes, have opinions but know when to keep them to yourself and when to air them. This is a great place to live, with great neighbors, and when you come down to it, we are all here together making it so. Keep up the good work. I like being a Palo Altan.

Palo Alto niceness is skin deep.

Yes, let's all go back into the closet and hide our true colors. I think the unveiling of racism in Palo Alto is very illuminating, amid our lip service of liberalism and "celebration" of diversity.

Parent, I've heard this saying and I think it speaks volumes. Sue moves into the neighborhood and asks her new neighbor Jill if people in her new neighborhood are nice. Jill asks her, "oh, were they nice in your last neighborhood"? Sue responds, "oh yes, they were very nice." Jill responds, "well I think you'll find that they are nice in this neighborhood too." In other words, you reap what you sow. Parent, you must be doing something right....
