A Thoughtful Spinaweb OpEd by Alex Granados

Click through to the link. Spinaweb is a local vocational program that is facing cuts in the current economy at the hands of the county. He really looks into the issue of the cuts and how deep they go, but he also has a personal take on it, discussion his experiences with his aunt, who has Down's Syndrome.

Alex did the first article on Jimmy in the Manassas Journal Messenger. He followed us around off and on for a week or two and got the Jimmy experience first hands. Since then, he has attended a birthday party and several career days at my school and is just an all around great guy. I almost like him as the editorial page editor more because I see a lot more of him - his ideas and opinions - in it. For those local folks, he makes the editorial page really worth the read.
