I had hoped to tutor my daughter Simone as she prepared for the challenge of Ms. Moore's summer reading assignment. How can the sophomores of La Cañada High School bemoan reading “The Iliad,” a classic piece of literature? I was consumed with rage for what Achilles did to Hector so I didn't at first hear the ring of the phone. However its persistence finally caught my attention.

TP-ing, the act of throwing toilet paper in trees, has been going on in La Cañada for generations. Some see it as a harmless prank, where others may consider it an act of vandalism. Teens may think it's for popularity, while parents can find it a nuisance to spend hours cleaning up. The real question is can TP-ing amount to vandalism or does it remain undisruptive fun? "I consider it harmless fun 'cause it doesn't damage property; it's just toilet paper. I can understand why friends would do it to each other as a joke.

As you can see, drawing your eyes across this page and onto the next, Valley Sun readers were not shy about sending us letters to the editor this week.

Not every letter submitted is printed, although we tried to shoehorn into our pages all that qualified. Three solid holdovers from La Cañadans will have to wait until next week's edition. There were also two anonymous letters in our mail.

If you read me last week, you’ll recall the call that came late at night summoning Simone to join three little girls on a clandestine mission to TP some friends’ houses. I joined this adventure as an embedded journalist trying to understand the nature of such a mission. Children gravitate toward that which gives them an experience.

Scientists who study brain development in adolescents, say the actual wiring is not completed and locked into place till they are in their early twenties. I believe that. I'd go further ? in guys I am not sure if it EVER really leaves the adolescent phase completely. How else to explain the success of Dumb and Dumber? And Borat? But our son's brain would, I think, give even those doughty researchers pause. On a recent morning I ran out to the garage and as I scurried across the pavers and their grass ribbons, my feet flew out from under me and I landed with a resounding thump.
