I was interested to see that this is Banned Book Week. In a country with freedom of speech and expression like the US, you'd think that the idea of banning books would not exist. But sadly, it's here. My opinion: I know that some subjects are not appropriate for certain age groups, and there are subjects that you may disagree with , and that's OK. If you don't like it, DON'T READ IT!!!! If I want to read something, I have the right to do so, without you putting your nose in my affairs. DON'T FORCE YOUR MORALITY ON ME! You take away 1 freedom, and the rest will follow...

Seems like the Republican Party has been hijacked by the extremist of the Tea Party. When you have someone like Utah Senator Bob Bennett, who is probably one of the most conservative members of congress primaried out of his job, you know that the crazies have taken control. The extremists demand that all party members vote in lock step with their demands, and any bit of compromise is seen as a sign of being a sellout. It remains to be seen if the Tea Party is a "Flavor of the month" Fad, if the sane members can regain control, or if the moderates are totally forced out.
Teacher, coach, or anyone else entrusted with your kids, who can you trust? Those who use their positions of authority to get close to kids in order to commit abuse are the lowest of the low, and need to be prosecuted as severly as possible!

I'm afraid that we are headed towards a religious war here in the US. The moderates in each faiths are being shouted out by the extremists, and lots of the extremists are calling for violence. Something needs to be done before people get hurt.

I know it's a bit late, but as we have reached the 9th anniversary of 9-11, what were you doing on that day? Me, I was home helping my mom with doing stuff around the house, as she was a few days out of the hospital after having surgery on her hand. We were both shocked, and I think the TV was on non stop all that week. I never thought that anything like that would ever happen in my lifetime. Let's never forget....
