About "Trial Dates Set on Municipal Schools Issues":

"If this does get to the Supreme Court, are they prepared to rule municipal school districts such as Mountain Brook, AL, Highland Park, TX, and Coronado, CA, (just to name a few) as unconstitutional? They all are in very similar racial situations compared to here. They are operating constitutional school districts there now. A Supreme Court ruling could theoretically impact all of them." — bjc123

About "Maybe It Ain't Over, But ..." and the upcoming school-consolidation proceedings:

"I found it interesting the mention of potential psychological damage the city/county could suffer if the elections proceed. If I'm interpreting that correctly, that sounds like someone saying the city leaders don't want to hear how badly people want to avoid their takeover attempts. In this case, for the first time maybe ever, they're going to have a formalized opinion on record stating exactly how much the people outside of the city limits want nothing to do with their leadership." — GroveReb84

About "Talking in Code" and how the proposed Unified Development Code might affect tattoo parlors in certain neighborhoods:

"I'm trying to remember the last time someone from the local tattoo shop knocked on my door, interrupting my dinner, to persuade me to get a tattoo."

About "Ralph Lauren's U.S. Olympic Uniforms":

"I just pre-ordered mine from Amazon. It's just so strange. I've been searching high and low for a stage costume that screams Sgt. Barry Sadler and Talking Heads combined, and damned if it's not here." — phlo
