Patch blogs recently have covered a spate of issues, from fish tacos to Rambo.
Lorraine Esposito raises an ethical—and fiscal—question: should parents pay kids for good grades? Her piece explores how to go about it, and with what you should be paying your kids. (Cash? Stickers?)
Blogger Philip Jenks marries two usually disparate topics: Christianity and Rambo. Jenks sounds off on revenge, its consequences and how to jibes with religion. Read his full essay here.
The Patch blog stable also housed a piece of ad hoc legislation this week. Veteran columnist and retired newspaperman Art Gunther III implores the American people to work together and abolish special interest influence. Head to his blog and leave your opinion.
On a lighter, and more spicy, note, check out Kaete Nazaroff's "Adventures in a Smaller Kitchen," where she outlines how to make easy tilapia tacos.
Finally: read up on a new Facebook scam, and why Larry Elkin's cousin went to prison.
