Last week's question:
Google recently demonstrated a driverless car in Dublin, which engineers say would cut down on parking issues and allow the blind, disabled and impaired to easily get places as well. The car, which will be available in the near future, has already clocked 500,000 miles in the Bay Area without an accident. How would you feel about riding in a car driven by a computer?
IT IS BAD enough that people don't know how to drive. They no longer teach you how to parallel park in drivers training. Now it is going to be left up to a computer on how the car is driven? Just sounds to unsafe for my taste, I enjoy being able to drive myself around.

I'D BE too nervous the computer would break down -- then what?

WITH 4 PERCENT of our fatalities coming from drunken drivers and 90 percent from human error, what is there not to like about a car with a driver that does not succumb to speeding, road rage, "one more for the road," exhaustion, texting or doing their hair in the mirror?

This week's question:
Do you think Dozier Libbey High School should be allowed to break away from Antioch Unified and become a charter school next year? Why or why not?
