Randy, will you be reporting from the meeting or just give your opinions?

At the moment, I am not planning to attend the meeting in person. I plan on watching the streamed version online. It is not quite the same, but considering I am in the middle of a lawsuit against the school district, it would probably be awkward for everyone.

Of course you won't you coward. It's much easier holing up in your little apartment criticizing others than getting out and actually facing people who despise you. It is the easy way out for someone who cannot look in the mirror and see they are the problem. Attack others repeatedly spewing the same rhetoric until people believe it. You sound like a politician.....
