Riverdale students are typically the ones hosting those ticketed parties at warehouses where kids show up wasted. Kids from all different schools attend, including SS, so I don't think R deserves all of the blame. [ Reply | More ]

I think every school has a crowd of kids who experiment with drugs, and a bunch of kids who don't. Luck of the draw. I went to a tt school and dh went to a shs and we both did, although he did more than I did. My sister went to the same tt school and never took a sip of alcohol until she was at an HYP. Then she tried everything. We're all doing fine. [ Reply | More ]

Listen, every school has kids who do drugs. Public and Private. Fact is, the private school kid's families probably have more money and so the kids have money to buy drugs. Not good, but that's the reality. [ Reply | More ]

I don't really see why you needed to start your reply with "listen," as if you were saying something really different from what I was saying. Just because kids have money doesn't mean they're going to buy drugs, just like legalizing drugs doesn't mean everyone is going to do drugs. It depends on the person. Far more people at my school didn't do drugs than those who did, and it had little to do with how much money they had. Probably a lot more to do with how happy they were at home. [ Reply | More ]

Where are these parties? Is this a one time thing that has been exaggerated by UB? [ Reply | More ]

No, not a one time thing but not limited to Riverdale. I can think of 4 of these that are put on every year. Usually the heads of several schools send out a letter to HS parents reminding them that these are not school events. Interschool warns parents about the unofficial senior trip to Atlantis.

Actually, the post said the Riverdale is known for an active social life, not that it is known for drug use. [ Reply | More ]

Her politics is the politics of identity, narrowed down to a very specific constituency: she’s selling herself as the hope of everyday rich white women who want to be president. Out came Madeleine Albright, who tastelessly said that there was a special place in Hell for women who don’t back Hillary. [ Reply | More ]

Anyone who depends on $$$$ from lobbyists should be disqualfied from the presidency. How about electing people that earn their own money? Or electing people who get $$$ from small donations from regular people? [ Reply | More ]

Americans can not find jobs but the Clintons are giving drivers licenses to criminal illegals to make it easier for the criminals and harder for American job seekers http://news.yahoo.com/california-grants-drivers-licenses-605-000-undocumented-005700910.html [ Reply | More ]
