Aww Terry, Who believes JD just happened by to snap the picture and he did not know who it. was. Someone tipped him. Why so much back up Did they think she was hauling drugs.Why did the DUI guys not simply take her to the hospital without the fanfare and smut picture. Suppose that was your mother. In order to get a scandle story the local news hurt not only the family, But all of us who are starved for role models in SOWEGA.

I don't see how the herald reporter can be called racially biased. Facts: 4 are black and three are white, Blacks voted no and whites voted for. I had three children graduate from Albany high in the 70's, They were well prepared for college and are proud alumni of AHS. Charter may or may not be a positive move, But heaven help us, We have to come together and turn the public school system around. Our board should ask themselves, Why are the private schools so much better than the public.

Sure this story wll get national attention because PP is a national star. What concerns me is the image of our city the scum bags have protrayed.What a way to put a black eye on Albany following the great publicity this clean cut lad gave us.

There may be truth to what Squawker is saying, But we are fortunate the reporter is digging into this. The big problem is the changes in our culture the last 5/6 decades, mainly the lack of parental control and involvement, And uneducated teachers. A lot of good teachers choose to teach in private instead of public schools with lower pay and benefits just as parents who can scrape up the money choose private. This may take decades to fix, But we have to start by electing leaders who recognize this and will fight for a return to self reliance and personal responsibility. Get out in November and help get the present administration out.
