    Great! Let’s focus on art while our children are being shot at (repeatedly) and our homes and cars are being broken in to and vandalized! There are more than twice as many people on the arts commission as there are police to patrol our whole city at night!

    • Katja Kloepfer says:

      Mike, this is a voluntary position and yes, if more children and teens got to do more art there would be less shootings. Just like us why don’t you do a voluntary neighborhood watch, get together/meet your neighbors and patrol the neighborhood to make it a safer place, I am doing my part, go ahead do yours!

    Great! Lets make wild hyperbolic statements and point to the sky and say “The plane,the plane” oh wait, that’s something else. We’ll say “it’s falling its falling!

    There is no hyperbole in my post. Maybe you aren’t sure what the word means. I see you are using it on this blog in more than just this post.

    My daughter’s friends are being shot at in my neighborhood. My neighbors’ houses and cars have been violated. People are scared and it has gotten worse over the past year. These are facts whether or not you care to see them discussed on this blog.
