LEARNING A BETTER OFFENSE

I've witnessed a great many defensive responses in my nearly 8 years of living in Baldwin/Crenshaw/Leimert by going to community meetings and speaking with fellow residents.  I've listened to a lot of complaints.  I've been party to a ton of outrage.  I'm not pointing fingers; I've been right there grumbling alongside everyone.
