Unlikable candidates: I think it's good that we have been given the chance to see two of the most unlikable people running for president. What we are seeing are things we need to get rid of, racism and bigotry. This election is showing how racially divided this country is.

Install the right lights: I read that the city of Aurora received a grant to put LED lights in backyards and places where it is dark in order to help reduce crime. There is a problem, however. First of all, I researched this. I wanted to put LED solar-powered lights in my backyard. The LED lights are expensive.

Here’s what I’ve been wondering since last year, when Donald Trump made race and immigration central to his campaign:
I'm disappointed with pro-business Republicans who are reluctant to renounce Donald Trump.
A historic cultural destruction trial. Continued fallout from the Marina Abramovic controversy. And Larry Gagosian helps Hillary Clinton. Plus: The unstable art market, what the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative could do to housing (not pretty) and a perfume ad for the ages. This is the Roundup:
Use your muscles instead of your mouth: I think that people should get together in their communities and help their communities by themselves instead of giving lip service and expecting the government to help. Hard work and determination is what brings people together. Nobody is proactive in our
Cheering on the Cubs : I was reading the Speak Out caller's prediction that the Cubs are going to win. I agree that they are going to win and go to the World Series. The Cubs are doing better this year than the last two years. I believe 100 percent that they are going to the World Series.
Maintain the tax freeze: Politicians are not the best presidents:
What is freedom without our freedom from fear?
Fidelity has been quietly lobbying politicians in favor of a new tax break that would encourage employers to help pay off employees' student debts.
