Re: “Reacting to Guns at Berkeley High

I think jayveee's suggestion is spot on. I am a stay-at-home mom to a Berkeley High freshman, a preschooler and a newborn and already volunteer on campus. We moved to Berkeley, bought a home, and decided to raise our children here because of Berkeley's idealism. However, when the rubber hits the road, this idealism is putting my child (who attends Berkeley High) in danger. In addition my experiences interacting with Berkeley's elected officials - around this and other issues - have been pretty disappointing. Honestly, I have found our elected representatives to be aloof and dismissive. I never thought - as a blue dog Democrat - that I would identify with the big government bashers on the far right. However, the more I interact with the career politicians in Berkeley who believe they know what's best and ignore their constituents the more I feel myself moving to the right - and wishing that I wasn't bankrolling their lack luster efforts with the ginormous property tax bill I dutifully pay twice a year.
