Letter to the Editor and all Americans
Our Public Servants and legislators seem to be mostly interested in enriching themselves and being reelected. They make poor laws that cause people to be charged with crimes even when the people had no intent to break a law.
I suggest we should remind them of the Golden Rule, and remind them that the laws they make may apply to their grandchildren. Everyone who has been and will be are grandchildren. We should make law and enforce law as we would want it applied to our grandchildren.
The Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity is a maxim, ethical code or morality that essentially states: One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.
If they consider their grandchildren when making and enforcing law, we may be hopeful that they make and enforce better law.
I am hopeful that all citizens will remind their public servants of this.

I certainly miss Iain Banks.
He was a great artist, and writer.
I enjoyed his Culture Novels.
It’s sad that we are so dependent upon oil for energy although Solar is good.
Thorium nuclear reactors may be a good way to get off of oil.
LA Schools seek refund from Apple and Pearson for botched IPAD plan and implementation.
Sad. I figured the primary issue would have been electrical infrastructure, but they didn’t mention that. Lifely as Ipad’s don’t use much electricity. My local school district also got IPADs. My 9 yo son has one. I don’t know how that is going for them.
Curriculum was the major issues with lack of completely integrated curriculum and testing as well as not including multi lingual capabilities. There are lots of folks in the LA area that don’t speak English, at least initially.
I suspect that Tablet usage should begin in Middle School or High School.
Photos and story from the BSA Ventura County Camporee 4/18/2015
I’ve placed 314 photos on Flickr, not yet curated, and unlikely to do so.
I dropped off some materials for K2BSA/6 on Friday 4/17, and then Saturday 4/18 I arrived to help with station operation and to help educate any visitors. I also walked around and took photographs of all the activity. I hope you enjoy them.
I did hear one contact that one of the Venturers made on 20m with Chile in South America.
It did get warm and, it was a bit of a dusty day.
My wife Joyce and my youngest son Niall attended and participated.
Great job by all the volunteer! Special Thank you to Ron Burns and Kudos to all for a fun time.
The Oaks in Thousand Oaks, CA, a large outdoor commercial mall had a Cub Scout day on 4/12/2015
The Mall was nice and, it was wonderful to see lots of families there.
I did notice that there was a severe lack of lavatories for the public. When I went to find one, it took a while to locate it. While it was large, the urinals were all out of order. Not good. I wonder who did the thinking on the design ?
