They've Done It Again
The kids have walked out of DISD classes again. I can look outside my window, at the corner of Oak Lawn and Maple avenues, and see a steady stream of students--probably some 50 or 60--walking south on Maple Avenue, hollering and waving their arms. A couple are carrying Mexican flags; a police car is trailing them. OK. The first day's a protest; the second day is called skipping school. --Julie Lyons
