There were three fascinating articles on the opinion page today (Nov. 15).
One was about a local mobile home park owner making $6,225 million from the sale, while giving no compensation to the homeowners who are being forced out.
Another was about students suffering from the state's draconian cuts to public education, and another was about the State College Area school district being billed for $10 million by the Royal Bank of Scotland for a loan it never used.
All this hardship has been caused by powerful people who care more about money than the suffering of ordinary people.
State College is a microcosm of America. Forget national politics; surely we can work together here to make our community a place where people get a fair deal. It would be the first step toward changing our country into the place where I'm sure all of us ordinary people want to live.
