Welcome Back, Diana, and discussion

It's wonderful to have your columns available again. I thank the Weekly for that.

I tried to get the Daily editor to invite guest columns from residents, but she said the columns had to be objective! Go figure.

I totally agree with your published column today on toilets in downtown Palo Alto and at the train station. You might know or not that the Human Relations Commission last week was considering a "Disturbing the Peace" ordinance submitted by Police Chief Johnson, the purpose of which is to make official that relieving oneself in unapproved places would be a violation of city code and would be cited. Such places include a stairwell in the city hall parking garage. I think this ties into your column.

I don't understand why the train station was closed for renovation and then closed again! You were speaking of the building, right? For trains and buses still stop there? I just don't get it. This is something our council should discuss in public.
