Letters to the Editor: Could Karen Bass and Rick Caruso form a ‘team of rivals’?
It was only four years ago when I wrote about Karmel Wade and I was pretty sure that I had taken on the challenge of finding out what it was about this woman that could turn people’s stomachs.

I was probably the only person at that high school that thought she was a threat to anyone’s rights.
As a parent, when a parent brings a child up in a particular way, they try to raise them in that way. And when that child gets a scholarship, they think that they are better, they are better than everyone else. And they can’t say, “Well, I really mean it. I really believe in what I did.” They don’t want to admit to themselves that they’re full of themselves, because that’s not who they are. And if they admit they have to admit to themselves to be better than their high school, which is the most competitive high school in the country, that’s
