The article mistakenly says that Ginny Brush at the Arts Commission originated the series with Roman. Ginny has no doubt done a great job recently, but the driving force behind the Courthouse movie series was Erik Axelson, at the time Deputy Director of SB County Parks. No doubt Salud Carbahal Janet Wolf and Terry Nisich would prefer that Erik's name not be mentioned, but he had the original idea for the movie series and worked with Roman to make it happen. Pleas, give credit where it is due, Vic.
On The Man Behind the Screenings

Why the nastiness, Riceman? If you read Brent's first article, you would have read that he expects to learn more from the people he meets on this trip than they will learn from him. And if you knew Brent, as I do, you would know that he is a dedicated local special ed teacher (and, I believe, a former Teacher of the Year in Goleta) who is a great believer in inclusive education for people with disabilities. If you have ever been in a developing country, as I have, you might know that in many societies people with disabilities - both physical and mental - are often hidden away and denied their rights to education. So maybe instead of the negativity, perhaps you could appreciate Brent's doing this, with his own funds, as a teaching and learning experience that will benefit his own students as well as the families he will meet in Kenya.
