    I'm sure he has his local defenders. I don't feel sorry for him, but I don't think he should have lost his job, as some have suggested.

    His supervisor apparently has quite the temper, too.

    But I wasn't there.

    This has called to mind an incident that occurred at my junior high school in the mid 1970s. Our school had a large class of mentally challenged students (maybe it was a district center for them, now that I think of it.) One afternoon, between classes, two of these female special-ed students began kissing one another full on the mouth, and obviously found it enjoyable.

    By appearance and demeanor, both girls were known to be severely handicapped. Their actions caused several students to stop and comment. Some jeered, some egged them on. It appeared to me they were being ridiculed, though they seemed oblivious to it. They were not more than 14 or 15 and I assume each was experiencing their first kiss. This was not a gay rights stance, it was childhood sexual curiosity being satisfied publicly.

    I wonder if the same, or similar, wasn't the case here, and if so, where was the caregiver? She's been quite vocal about denouncing how the pool attendant handled things, but what was she doing in her own capacity to maintain control of those she was supervising?

    Good question.

    Also I wouldn't hook up with someone who was developmentally disabled. If I want that level of conversation I come here to talk to you.

    I don't know. I would like to read the city attorney's report, but I can't find it. (I haven't looked for it since yesterday tho and there seems to be more reportage today.)
    I would have asked their opinion on my wife's new bathing suit..

    You DO realize there are MILLIONS of people who ignore warnings right?
    And if it actually is applied fairly and they actually had warnings, you're absolutely right and this was correct.

    Considering we have no evidence of that being the case and its entirely conjecture at this point, with no stories saying they'd been warned before, its not really seeming like the case here at this point and time with the facts as we currently know them.
