Look at the people agreeing with you David ^^^ They think talking about human reproduction (something most people do) in public school indicates some sort of "moral decline." Disgusting.
Sex Week organizers at UTK took the leadership of students on campus. Organizers ask, students responded, organizers organized sex week. The events happening at Sex Week are what the students asked for. Sex week has an event for everyone. This article is disrespectful and completely dismisses their right to self determination.
You have no right to tell them what they should and should not do. What you've said is extremely paternalistic. They are adults. They can talk about sex however they want to. And if they feel like they should make sex education fun and engaging for students, then so be it. Their events are not foolish, they are designed to make people who think sex is a taboo topic more comfortable discussing it with other students.
There's only one person to blame for our debt crisis
No politicians get to complain about the deficit until they cut "defense" spending.
I bet all the people who voted 'no' in that poll have never talked to a single gang member in their life.
Great column David. I'm glad you pointed out that the rest of us sit around talking about how to end crime, and don't consider the people who actually live with it on a daily basis. It makes me think of this stupid times free press poll
Why the paper asks stupid questions like this, I don't know. Who cares what the readers of the times free press think about this? They aren't the ones who matter. The ones who do are the people who live their lives out as gang members. They're the ones will make the difference. Not the bourgeois yuppies on the North Shore and Signal Mountain.
I also hope the whitewashed media will stop attributing every single shooting to "gang violence," because most of the shootings don't involve gang members. That's just a racist term that our media likes to slap on any crime involving black people.
I like my porn in the form of sitcom parodies. Seinfeld, anyone?
Teachers provide an actual invaluable service yet they are forced to work second jobs to feed their families.
Murphy is a weasel.
