[ - ] I can't wrap my head around this burkini ban. I just saw a picture of a woman being forced to take off her clothes surrounded by a couple of male police officers. Yet, there are nuns in their habits at the beach. This is like further oppressing the 'oppressed'. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I'm at a loss. I need someone to pick up my daughter from school and then drop her off at her dance school two days per week. The pickup/dropoff person wouldn't even need to stay w/ my daughter at dance class and would literally only do pickup, bus/train 20 blocks uptown, and then drop her off. I have tried care.com and my neighborhood listserve, but I cannot find anyone willing/able to do this. Everyone is seeking full-time employment. Any suggestions? Is there some sort of kids-only Uber I don't know about? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] S/0 on the who you support now vs 6 months ago. Why would a Bernie supporter vote for Trump? I understand that they may not like Hillary but Bernie and The Donald have completely different values and goals for the country. Are you just voting for a personality and not principles?

[ - ] UB world travelers!! You're probably back home now and getting the kids ready for school, etc. This is my question: Which places have you traveled that you found to be completely over rated or underrated? I'll start. Barcelona. I'll never try and travel back there. I found the many of the Catalans unwilling to speak Spanish and they would bring my family English menus or immediately begin speaking to us in English. Very presumptuous and many times a bit arrogant. The streets were tightly packed with tourists and people with selfie sticks taking pictures of themselves non stop. It was hot, crowded and filthy. It was so hot, crowded and filthy that even the architecture left me underwhelmed. 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Would you go back? Avoid Monjuic. The people don't clean up after their dogs and dog feces is smeared all over the sidewalks. Indigents have set up shop in doorways and ATM areas of banks after the banks close. The street with the cafes in Monjuic doesn't wash their streets. You can be sitting outside having a cafe con leche and somee dopey person allows their dog to pee or crap almost right next to you. They are filthy. ugh. [ Reply | More ]
