  1. Awaiting for TR to publish the City’s report on the recent sewage spills, followed by a Special Report by Terry Ryan on the sewage spills.

  2. Having Ginsberg’s Book in a High School Library doesn’t really bother me that much. Their might be only a couple People that would actually be interested in it to actually read it and possibly a couple People wanting to check it out to make fun of it and a couple People wanting to make a big deal out of it being their and the rest wont go near it for fear of being teased. Then all the hoopla will die down after a while. The big thing to watch out for is a Teacher making the Students read it as an assignment.
