Thanks for the great tips for everyone Nan. I should have mentionned fresh parsley as an upgrade option. Many of my recipes are written from an "on hand" perspective, and dried herbs are always on hand in my kitchen.
I make the same recipe frequently with white beans also, preferred by my wife & mother-in-law actually, but I like the firmer texture of the chick peas.The recipe is really a base for anyone to jump off from. Substitute black beans and dice grilled chicken for tuna & chick peas, mix in a little fresh grilled corn and you just traveled from the Mediterranean Sea to Southwest America!
For those who love the tart, Please take Nan's advice for some fresh lemon juice, or even lime juice, but please use the zest to pump of the flavor and use the citrus moderately to taste so you don't blow yourself away with tartness. I am a self professed vinegar junkie, but mix lime into my recipes whenever I can!

Thank You Marina for raising this topic. Every election cycle brings about a rally cry for the national popular vote. The electoral college was instituted by our founding fathers specifically to avoid the needs of urban centers dominating elections. the leadership of our nation is to be determined as structured by a majority of the population representing individual sovereign states, and protect the interest of smaller states such as Rhode Island. The electoral college, while it may have its inherent flaws, allows each state to have an independent opinion and a chance to matter in the election. To simply throw our lot in with the majority by diminishes our individual freedoms and denies the right of our state's citizen to help choose leadership which best represents their own interest.
Regardless, any change to the election process should be forced to pass the rigors of a Constitutional amendment process, and not subject to legislative whim which brings us closer to the Parliamentary process used in other nations where the law of the land can be subjected to the mood swings of a nation.
Again thank you, I shall contact my representatives.

While I truly commend the school and the administration for any initiative to encourage involvement, a mandate or requirement is the wrong approach. Looking back on my own HS years, albeit 25 yrs ago, I simply did not have time. I worked every day after school and weekends out of requirement, even in grades 9 and 10.
I am sure many other students are in similar situations, either for a family business or part time jobs to help themselves and ease the burden on their family.
Students also have a world of activities available to them outside of the school, many of which require large financial and time commitments from the students and parents alike. Martial Arts classes, Scouting and Dance are just a few examples.
Other students simply are not social. Either they prefer their own company and independence,they have legitimate fears of these situations or legitimate medical conditions, such as Aspbereger's Syndrome, which can make social situations profoundly difficult. Such a mandate will place more unnecessary stress on students who work hard to fit in already or simply prefer not to be part of a larger group.
Encouraging and rewarding involvement is a fine idea, but to mandate the action is to group too many individuals together for a perceived collective need while ignoring too many individual needs.
