the school Merry My response You have to be kidding At that Stoker Thats its Merry Whites responsibility and turned to Superintendent Ron Reeves who Thats what we it is Merry Whites I have never witnessed two men in their position trying to put off their responsibility for safety In I could not believe the NBISD Board of Trustees did not question their answers to Within several the rebar was a plywood wall was constructed and barrier netting was These are routine pre cautions that should be taken by any con struction especially in that atmos A number of my neighbors have been and also a woman working the book fair at Carl Schurz had her window broken out and her purse It appears that crime in our neighborhood has increased since construction began at Carl I asked Superintendent Reeves what he could do about I stated that these construction workers sit on the curb smoking cigarettes in front of my next across the street and along the curb facing the I feel as though they are

to follow Reagans lead and nominate a conservative AMNCOOLTER Ann Coulter is an attor author and a columnist for Universal Press Perhaps President Bush has inadver tently nominated a true conserva tive to the court with this Roberts I remain skeptical based on the following facts 1 Anita Hill has not stepped for ward to accuse Roberts of sexual 2 The Democrats did not accuse Roberts of having a secret life as a 3 We have no idea what kind of videos he Im still steamed that Bush has now dashed my dreams of an allblack Supreme Court composed of eight more Clarence eight more Clarence Thomases is the only form of human cloning I would ever As liberal Hendrik Hertzberg wrote in The New Roberts was a scared After Hurricane Bush was even more So when he had to pick a chief he renominated the Rorschach For its What Would Jesus Do For its What Would Reagan Do Bush doesnt have to be Reagan he just has to consult his WWRD If Bush had followed the WWRD guide he would have nominated Antonin Scalia for the chief As I refer you to the When Reagan had an opening for chief he nominated Associate Justice William While liberals were preoccupied staging dieins against Rehnquist and accusing him of chasing black people away from the polls with a stick something they did not accuse Roberts Reagan slipped Scalia onto the Thats what Reaganesque presidents with a fivevote margin in the Senate typ ically Apart from toppling the Soviet Scalia remains Reagans greatest Scalia deserved the chief Hes the best man for the He has suf fered lo these many years with Justices Kennedy and He believes in a sedentary Hes for judicial Scalia also would have been the first hotblood ed Italian chief which I note the diversity crowd never But most if Bush had nomi nated liberals would have responded with their usual understated screams of and Bush could have nominated absolutely anyone to fill Justice OConnors He also could have cut invaded Syria and bombed North Korea and Cuba just for He could even have done something totally like enforce the immigration Even if Roberts turns out to be another Rehnquist too much to hope for another we dont know Bush doesnt know that and Bush has blown a golden opportunity to make Chuck Schumer the public face of the Democratic A few weeks of Schumer as their and normal Democrats would be clam oring for Howard Dean to get back on the Teddy Kennedy would start show ing up at hearings actually holding a double Inasmuch as Bush must still choose a replacement for its important to remember the Sandra Day OConnor bylaw to the WWRD guidelines Never appoint anyone like Sandra Day OCon nor to any court at any Reagan had made a campaign promise to appoint a woman to the Supreme He didnt say anything about appointing a But back in it was slim pickings for experienced female OConnor was a terrible mistake and will forever mar Reagans but at least he did it only Bush has already fulfilled all his cam paign promises to liberals and then some He said hed be a compassionate which liberals interpreted to mean that he would bend to their enact massive spending programs and be nice to When Bush won the elec that sealed the It meant the Democrats Bush has enacted mas sive new spending obstinately refused to deal with illegal opposed all conservative Republicans in their primary races and invited Teddy Kennedy over for movie Hes even sent his own father to socialize with aging porn star Bill According to my WWRD its time for Bush to invade bomb fire the air traffic controllers and joke about launching a first strike against the Soviet In lieu of how about nominating a conservative to OConnors seat on the court It would be a bold
