Yay for Palo Alto possibly becoming a bit less racist and classist in their ways!
Now they need to build some more housing!

While I am not a resident of Palo Alto, somehow it feels that this is another nail in the coffin of common sense...

Thank you to the ACLU and NAACP for holding supposedly liberal Palo Altoans' feet to the fire. If you consider yourself a progressive and were in favor of this ban it's time for some self-reflection.

Good news. Thanks NAACP and ACLU. Doug Moran is not going to be happy:

Finally. And this is a great example of why my momma said the family should give some money to the NAACP. She didn't in her will, but I guess I'm obligated to change mine (actually a Beneficiary Designation %)
Taking it to the Judge is what at times is necessary for a group to get a government agency - and a stuck-in-place governance body - to figure out they are in Modern Times. God bless the ACLU too.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
