"2007 will be remembered as the year a Gunn High School student was kidnapped and assaulted outside her apartment complex by a troubled Paly grad arrested just days later" 2007 The Year in Review

Instead let 2007 be remembered as the year that Palo Alto affirmed that the safety of each and everyone of our citizens is what really matters. Let us continue to give our support to those who have suffered, extend our most heartfelt good wishes, and any services we can offer. Let us respect their privacy and right to dignity as they move forward in their lives. Best wishes for the new year.

I like your current 3 left margin photos. David Burpee and James Dalton make appropriate company for Emily Harrison.

Was this intentional or a Freudian slip? Either way works for me!
