Touches every human emotion Leslie Thurston of Burbank is an actress and substitute teacher. It would be pointless to say anything critical about "John Q.," so, I won't. Everyone should see this film and bring the hankies. However, you won't need them as much as you think. Surprisingly, there is humor throughout this film, especially from the talented Eddie Griffin. Rest assured, Denzel Washington doesn't disappoint, either. Yet, it is the comedic element that gives the story emotional balance and sense of reality.

I believe everyone has a right to good, affordable health care. Unfortunately, we live in America, where that is no longer possible. As a member of the musicians' union (Local 47), I can sympathize with the grocery strikers. But most members of my union have to buy their own health insurance, since only about 2% of members qualify for coverage under the union plan. My wife is a substitute teacher in the L.A. Unified School District and a member of the teachers' union.

BURBANK — Substitute teachers in the Burbank Unified School District can expect to be paid a bit more money for their services starting in August. The school board on Thursday approved a 7% pay raise for all substitutes who serve in Burbank schools. The increase would amount to about $105,000 more a year for the district to spend on these part-time services, according to a district report. Substitute teaching positions in the district have not received a compensation boost for seven years, so district administrators felt it was the right time to give them an extra boost, said Gabe Soumakian, assistant superintendent of human resources.
