Yes you are right Eric. Indeed there are more parents that are drunks and pill poppers in this town than I have ever seen anywhere else. Not to mention a bunch of parents who are just to busy with their own lives they just look the other way. Give the kids everything and then they can have their own lives. Wake up Novato parents. Stop trying to one up each other and start being a parent. Think of all the kids who have died in Novato crashes in the past ten years.

From Davids comments, It would be simple to have a reminder on that curve that has caused so much misery. I remember it as Jennifer Moore Corner and I will and respecting her life. Tougher to bear for me that anyone in this community was capable of doing that to another. Dumping her body in Novato Creek after her Rape. Anyways, I've seen enough tragedy there and I would have the County dig a few ripple stripes in the roadway. Just enough to slow down or observe the lower speed for that corner. It wouldn't take much.
