It’s unfortunate to see a community health center serving our most vulnerable population undergoing such turmoil (Employees question quality of care at Rox health center, Bay State Banner, Aug. 2, 2012). I cannot imagine what the staff and patients are experiencing under this “third world regime.”
No hot water to wash hands? I hope the media and department of public health step in and take a serious look at the condition of the health center and make changes as needed. This is no way to take care of our neediest population and the clinicians who’ve devoted their lives to them.
How do you expect redistricting officials and redistricting advocates to understand redistricting?
Clear, precise maps are needed with the names of the districts’ bordering streets. That way people can see [on which] street a district ends and the next district begins.

On Saturday, October 29, 2011, Penn State’s football team defeated the University of Illinois, giving Joe Paterno his 409th victory and thus breaking the record of 408 victories held at that time by the late Eddie Robinson of Grambling State University in Louisiana.
Less than a week later, the Jerry Sandusky scandal broke, eventually leading to his conviction on dozens of child sex abuse charges and the firing of Coach Paterno, the president of the University and other high-ranking officials.
Later, an investigation headed by Judge Louis Freeh, former director of the FBI, alleged complicity and cover-ups at the University involving Sandusky that might have lasted more than a decade.
My question is: What would have happened if Eddie Robinson had been equally mired in a Sandusky-like scandal at historically black Grambling State University for more than a decade and broke Joe Paterno’s record? If the scandal was so egregious and extensive that Coach Robinson, the president of the University and other high-ranking officials were fired, would not the new football record at least come with an asterisk?
Just asking—that’s all.
