  • OMG...are you kidding me patientearth?!?! You need to losen up a little. I took mine out too. I WAS NOT going to let my kids sit in a classroom and not be able to marvel in the rare opportunity that was given that day. The memories that were made that day are way more important to me than worring about having one unexscued absence. Give me a break!

  • Nice pics, I especially like the photo taken by reporter Allison Miles from on top of the Victoria Advocate building. Reuters has a daily Editor's choice selection of picture's from the past 24 hours at I try to check it daily. It's amazing how you can tell a story with pictures. It would be nice to see a similar daily or weekly blog in the online version of The Victoria Advocate.
