There’s a class of approximately 12 people — 11 women and one man — sitting with notebooks and writing utensils grouped together in quasi-teams near 9:45 on a Thursday morning. The class is in a room filled with desks designed for much smaller people — the facility, the Eisenhower Center for Innovation, is technically one of Mesa Public Schools’ elementary facilities — which the attendees visit every Monday through Thursday for three hours.

Thanksgiving is a day of warmth amid a cold season that serves as a sharp contrast to the start of a desolate stretch of months. It’s the start of a stretch that can be quite difficult for families who cannot afford several of the components that fuel the warmth, whether it’s the turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing or the camaraderie that comes from spending an afternoon among the people who care.
Well, can you blame them if they don’t want to be sued by Baha’is, Buddhists, Hindus, pagans, Shintoists, Sikhs and Jains, etc., for not allowing their public-school students to observe their religious holidays? “Diversity” has become the progressive/liberal/socialist/Democrat mantra. Our liberal local and federal judges, appellate courts, and four Supreme Court justices no longer consider America as a Judeo-Christian nation, even though America’s Founding Fathers and successive administrations until the 1960s thought so.
The Great Globe Project developed at the East Valley Institute of Technology is drawing crowds and fascinating young minds at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix.
Long ago, it was determined that monopolies by companies such as Bell Telephone and Standard Oil were not in the best interest of our country.
