I thing we had sort of gone beyond the "gang" member rehab, and had
focused more on getting them *before* they became gang members.  A
suggestion was made along the lines of a "Big Brothers/Sisters" type of
setup.  I thought maybe a program that ran in conjuction with school, or
a summer program might be a *feasable* idea...........

Sad to say, that very same thought was tickling the back of my mind as
well.  Having been the victim of "fringe" gang activity in my old neighborhood
here in Austin.

Amusing isn't it?!  But we all need our outlets!  As 'wolf said once earlier
it's our way of staying sane in an increasingly insane world!
