Mak­ing sure all the parts work to­gether is how we make progress

the ar­ti­cle on­line.

We could not print an ar­ti­cle about a bro­ken win­dow, al­low­ing ac­cess into the li­brary be­fore of­fer­ing Mayor Jack­son an op­por­tu­nity to re­pair the breach.

City of­fi­cials re­sponded im­me­di­ately as a work crew se­cured the build­ing.

Mayor Jack­son even sent a com­mu­ni­ca­tion of­fer­ing thanks for a po­ten­tial more se­ri­ous event.

Jack­son by no means ranks as my new­est, bestest, buddy al­though his po­si­tion as mayor de­serves re­spect.

Jack­son’s com­mu­ni­ca­tion hardly changes an opin­ion that city of­fi­cials should fo­cus more at­ten­tion on ed­u­ca­tion. Un­fath­omable that seven years af­ter clos­ing, hun­dreds of books and other li­brary items re­main in­side the East Tren­ton branch.

Still, ku­dos to city work­ers for their re­sponse. Per­haps, a proac­tive move may be to put steel bars on the li­brary win­dows.

May as well make East Tren­ton Li­brary mir­ror the po­ten­tial fu­ture des­ti­na­tion for city youth be­ing short­changed in ways to es­cape poverty.

Well, there’s al­ways the New Jersey state prisons where in­mates can earn an ed­u­ca­tion in­side in­sti­tu­tions’ li­braries.

Hey, Mayor Eric “Big Toe” Jack­son, open just one of the closed li­braries and talk fre­quently about ed­u­ca­tion in­vest­ment.

Tren­ton will con­tinue to de­cline un­til of­fi­cials fo­cus more at­ten­tion on learn­ing.

Mur­ray as Winger would of­fer this con­fir­ma­tion.

That’s the fact, Jack.
