Scouts should model justice, equality

The Boy Scouts in your recent articles are deserving of recognition and praise for their service and accomplishments. Congratulations to them for their hard work and dedication.

I confess, however, that when I read about how the Boy Scouts are shaping the lives of young men, I am saddened by the knowledge that neither of my gay sons would have been welcomed by that organization either as Scouts when they were younger or as Scoutmasters now that they are adults.

Ticket motorists for U-turns on Main Street

As I was walking downtown on Main Street recently, something came to me out of the blue. The town of Los Altos is missing out on a huge revenue stream. I realized that if all the cars – there were three in less than a half-hour – that make U-turns in the middle of Main Street were ticketed, we might be able to build that new community center everyone is talking about.

Just think, if we posted a policeman on a bicycle downtown and he nabbed every one of these lawbreakers and gave them a $300 ticket, the money would start piling up. Where else can you make $900 in a half-hour?
