hunger strike

Started today in front if the Hilton in Mission Valley. I need to go back later and write the first of a series of stories for blog/ op news.

Here is a stat that might blow all thinking of we are a middle class counyry.

San Diego Unified has 130,000 students. Two thirds qualify for the enhanced school lunch program. This means breakfast and lunch at school . Their parents are low wage earners. Got this from a school bosrd member

This is just to wet your appetite

Now tell me DU'ers, this is a large urban area in California. Do you see any issues?

And i might have to write for the blog two veraions of it. One in english, the other in Spanish

1. I read a stat in our local fish wrapper, that in my county, San Luis Obispo County, there are

enough homeless children to fill an elementary school. I suppose they qualify for those lunch programs too.

3. Did you read the heartless comments to the article?

This is the mentality I contend with all the time thanks to Fox News and Rush Limbug brainwashing. I'm surprised no one suggested that the children should just go get a job.

But after i send the article i expect them.

And now that I got home, and can on an actual computer, OMG! Sadly I am not surprised though.

5. I might add, before coming home

the incoming school superintendent Cindy Marten came to talk to the parents, and chiefly the children of these parents who are at risk of losing their jobs. As she told me, "I can't personally fix it now, but we can give the children a safe environment."

What she is afraid is that children are afraid that next it will be them, and papers please... and losing school as well.

So there you have it. Me, have to go to write the story of the San Diego Nine. Take the story of the San Diego Nine (which I will post later) for what it is. This is part of the trend we are seeing of more workers striking. They feel they don't have anything to lose at this point... so in some ways... we might very well be there.

Ah the joys of having interviews in both English and Spanish...
