And Then There's This

Some updates on subjects I've recently blogged about:

The little 3 year old's father was arrested yesterday. The charge is a misdeamnor - filing a false police report - as he has told police 4 different stories and can't seem to make one stick. The search, conducted by Texas EquuiSearch (of Natalee Holloway fame) is concentrated on the east side. The mother lives on the east side, the father lives on the west side. Searches will begin again today as yesterday police leads were being checked out. The father is expected to bond out today.

Rudy Rios, the ESL and jr varsity coach at Chavez High School, is fighting his dismissal from coaching after he was disciplined for printing and distributing a flyer to students encouraging them to participate in the immigration rallies and school walk-outs. He says he must fight the school board, even though he is allowed to continue his teaching position, because he must be an example to the students about standing up to authority. He hasn't apologized. But, he did use his own paper for the fliers, after all!

Husband and I went to son's acting class play last night. It was an interesting play as an inside look at a group of teens putting on an except of Victor Hugo's Les Miserables. The part where Jean Valjean is invited to sleep at the Bishop's house then steals the silver candlestick. Our son was the Bishop. Afterwards, we all went to a burger/bbq place nearby. The parents sat amongst themselves so the kids could hang out together. Parents can't get too close, you know. It's not cool.

Reminder: Head on over to Basil's Blog (www.basilsblog.net) and submit a question for my upcoming interview. Thank you kindly.

Hope they find the little boy OK, but you're right, it doesn't sound good.
