      You can't keep a mighty tree alive (much less expect it to thrive) by only spritzing the fine leaves at its tippy-top. The fate of the whole tree depends on nurturing the grassroots. - Jim Hightower

          the Boy Scouts of America requires background, screening, and "two-deep" adult supervision (i.e., one adult is not allowed to be alone with kids) in activities.  Same for the Catholic Church in any of their youth activities.  But kids in public schools deserve less?

          Here's a thought exercise: what if a LOT of Hispanic adults started showing up to join Arpaio's "posses" with guns, badges, look-alike uniforms and cars, etc.  Basically, just over-run and co-opt his effort with other (many of them browner) folks from the community?  Just an idea...
