Nice review. Shows how crazy times are...

An Exxon CEO and Putin award winner as Secretary of State, then fired.

Protests regarding yet another mass shooting, this the at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school.

Aaron Persky. The historic Blue Wave election.

Christine Blasey Ford.

The takeover of Palo Alto as an office park continues almost unabated.

Residentialists preferred by voters but won't create a majority against those who lied about their inclinations to take office in the last election. Voters saw through it for open space seat.

We witnessed the dangers of overbuilding for the infrastructure in videos of CA fires. Story about lack of preparedness.

Schools renamed, got solar panels. Neighborhood nearby Fletcher coincidentally getting parked up and may need to join in surrounding parking restrictions.

School board elections still didn't get us an ombusposition. 2e movie and still way too many special needs unaddressed.

The party supposedly wanting to reduce the impact of government in ordinary lives has spent the year reaching down into lives and shaking people all around, and constantly demanding attention. Many Palo Alto families quietly in financial crisis over tax increases for people in the middle living in high-cost parts of the nation.
