I'm glad they are going back to school. Maybe now the teenagers will be less bored and not hanging around smoking whatever they smoke, using the F-bomb, and listening to rap music. These kids have everything, cars, clothes, Iphones and lots of time to waste. You never see any of them mowing lawns or washing cars. They just hang around, party, and speed on our streets. They are entitled by their parents. What a great life.

Dear Louise, you just about covered it all and I think you said it correctly. But watch, I am sure you will hear from those naive parents that believe their little angels are little angels.

But Louise, I don't think is a great life...it may seem that way now, but wait...these little angels are being brought up in a life that doesn't have reality tied to it...One day they will wake up and blame their parents for being so gutless and not pointing them in the right direction...believe me it will happen that way.

Oh yes...there a many parents in Danville, Alamo and San Ramon that are scared to offend their little angels. Sad but true.

Thank you listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo
