Re: “Don't Cry for Me Babey

This restrospective exhibition showcases photographs of farm workers taken by Ernest Lowe 50 years ago in California's Central and Salinas Valleys. The focus of the show is on children and families. 50 years ago Lowe photographed many children working in the fields, some as young as 4 years old. In researching the situation today, Lowe found little has changed-- young children are still being exploited by corporate agribusiness. See www.ernestlowe.com for more information and a preview of the show itself. The show's opening is tonight, with wine, appetizers, and a talk by Lowe, and the show runs through the the end of the year.

Re: “The Case for Private Security Guards

Sure, this strategy may make sense for neighborhoods with low levels of violent crime. However, I am disturbed by the fact that the trend is moving downhill. Recently, neighbors in Maxwell Park made the decision to hire private security and now there is a group in my neighborhood, the Melrose, considering doing the same. Guns and gun violence are commonplace here, in fact we hear gunshots on virtually a daily basis. I lost count long ago of how many homicides have occurred since I have lived here (since 2005). Judy Salomon was murdered a block away from my house, my husband was in the backyard at the time and heard the shots. What chance does an unarmed security guard have against the kind of people that would take out a 66 year old woman in the middle of the day for no apparent reason? For neighborhoods like mine this strategy just does not make sense. We need the community policing Quan has been promising lo these many years, with beat cops on the streets, cops we can talk to, who know everyone in the neighborhood. We need regular patrol car drive throughs, not just high speed chases down our streets in the middle of the night. And we all need to stand up ourselves and do whatever we can to better our communities, to show those that have no respect for life and community that we care and that we are not afraid, and that there is no place for disrespect and violence in our neighborhoods.
