San Diego Plastic Bag Ban Moves Forward

I used to use my plastic bags as trash bags, because they fit so well in my little kitchen trash bin. Now I use my reusable bags and I bought a roll of biodegradable bags for my trash. I look forward to this ban on plastic.

Gay And Muslim: Living Between Worlds

I say that we all have a responsibility to nurture a culture of tolerance and not to institutionalize our personal notions of what constitutes an appropriate identity, so long as no harm is being done to others.

I'm so proud of Iman for her courage in coming out and putting a public face on such a difficult private struggle. She will make a great role model for young kids who also feel like they are experiencing criticism from all sides in isolation.

This absolutely is for everyone else to deal with. While listening to this story, it struck me how familiar Iman's voice was. I went online to read the article and sure enough, I know this young woman- I was Iman's teacher years ago. My reaction is absolutely not that it's solely for her family to deal with. I wish I had known more then about her struggle. This story is a powerful reminder that we need to listen to our youth more. Thank you, Iman.

I am going to miss Performance Today, but I didn't like hearing it at 7pm. It seemed to be too early for classical music, especially in the warmer months when it is still sunny close to 8pm. I would have moved Performance Today to 8 or 9pm and put more local programming in the 7-9pm slots.

I will try the classical streaming, but I am not sure that I will like it, mainly because I liked the show format, with a host that explains some background for the music being played.
