    • some salient comments in that article. I agree with Randy Newman’s synopsis on the basic functions of music in Film. Music can be an amplifier of movements and moods. It can also be about songs capturing feelings that the film wants to get across to its audience. Its worth pointing out that some film composers like myself work in tandem with writers and directors. In short, a developing film score can sometimes influence the film makers decisions on plot and mood and character development.

    • Dear Tommy,
      I really liked reading your post and found the topic to be interesting to read. I also learned something new because I didn’t know that San Francisco’s minimum wage was $15. I’m currently at the point in my life where I need to find a job. Without a job, I won’t get any money for myself. I believe some jobs do not pay their workers/employees enough. And so I think that raising the minimum wage is definitely a topic that more people should be talking about, especially workers. I liked how your post is about an important issue/topic.

  • Hi, I don’t see how political correctness is our downfall. You also do not provide an example.

    Dear Katelyn,

    I agree with you on most of it. However, on the part of filing taxes, I think we should increase the threshold for not filing taxes. I think we should increase the threshold to $300,000, because if
