While reading Sound Off comments, which sometimes are funnier than the comics although the callers are being serious, it makes me wonder how this area survives with some of the truly uninformed and ignorant people that are here. First, the comment about the State of the City Address being held at a “local tavern.” The business is called Remington Tavern and is an excellent mid-scale restaurant that is a sign of growth in the city taking a run down building and making it into beautiful live, work and dining space. Second, teachers give homework because they don’t want to teach. Really? There is much more work being placed upon teachers, including raising your kids who you take little responsibility for. Teachers have just as much homework as their students, spending hours each night reviewing, grading and preparing for the next day. I’ll bet when you punch out at 5 you don’t even remember where you work until the next
