Why are all the blog topics related to stories already running? Nothing new or exciting. What is really going on in education? What happened to investigative reporting?

Have I been living on a different planet? I remember when a guy got hazed to hell and back for not drinking enough. Several years later, one would not have flown the mission if he wasn’t sufficiently plowed. What happened to the good ole days? On a slightly more serious note…sure, the behavior described was/is somewhat irresponsible and ladden with potential for both short and long-term consequences, however, it would appear that society has become so saturated with arbitrary pc standards that we forget what being just plain human, warts and all, is all about. I’m in no way advocating boozing with reckless abandon, simply a departure from the guilt-ladden adhearance to pc standards which have come to regulate our lives. When I was a kid, for example, my friends and I delighted in pouring over one of our Dad’s stacks of National Geographics…in search of photos of parts of the world where lady-folk went about their daily doings without benefit of upperwear. While this transgression of the day may have been viewed as “early porn”, it certainly did not lead to a generation of degenerates. Weather it’s boozing/not boozing, viewing porn, or praying to rattlesnakes, the entire pc movement has done little more than create a guilt-ridden generation(s)…life is hard enough without adding to our daily burdens by way of the religous right’s spewing of their versions of “the right way”.
