Shame on you, Beverly Hall.

Hall should return superintendent award
Perhaps, in light of the incredible APS cheating report, whoever gave Hall the national Superintendent of the Year award should ask for it back. If she had any conscience, she’d send it back without being asked for it.

Hall should return her bonus money, too
As a graduate of Atlanta Public Schools (and a taxpayer), I am appalled at the widespread, unethical behavior of the APS administrators, principals and teachers. They betrayed the trust of the students, parents and community.
Beverly Hall must return her bonuses and her awards. The district attorneys must prosecute where appropriate.

Illegal immigrants need us, and we need them
The illegal immigrants are here because we need them. They would not be here unless there were jobs. There are jobs available because no one else wants to do them.
We need to have a simple way for people to get a work visa. It is way too difficult.
There needs to be a reasonable strategy. For example, if a company needs a worker, and a person needs a job, the person could get a work visa for a year. If a person gets a work visa for a year and returns to his or her home country, he could then re-apply for another one. If he does this twice, he could then apply for a permanent resident visa.
There are many, many good and decent people here who are living in fear. We need them. They need us. Let’s get this crazy dilemma resolved.

Don’t compete to eat; compete to feed others
When millions of people (many of them children) are starving, is it immoral to hold contests eating sickening amounts of food in record time? Would it not be more commendable to donate a record amount of food by companies to charitable institutions or individuals who need it? How about that for a contest?
