Make sure to check out Kristin Czubkowski’s run-down of important city meetings this week.
Herald emphasizes its boycott position. Encourages everybody to show up for City Council vote on the proposal next week.
Kyle Szarzynski removed from SSFC for attendance issues. Couldn’t there be a sexier reason?

Andrew Carpenter opines on the Pledge of Allegiance. A little generic but reminds me of my senior year English teacher, who always said the pledge but always omitted “under God.” Carpenter also should have researched the origin of the inclusion of “under God” in the pledge.
