Students having a voice
A high-school newspaper in Tennesee published an article about birth control, listing success rates for different methods and suggestions on where to get contraceptives. It also published a photo of a student's tattoo while the student, who was not identified, had not told her parents about the tattoo. School administrators confiscated all copies of the newspaper and of course this started another First Amendment debate.
"This is a terrible lesson in civics," University of Tennessee journalism professor Dwight Teeter said. "This is an issue about the administration wanting to have control. Either the students are going to have a voice, or you're going to have a PR rag for the administration."
I beg to differ with professor Teeter. I don't think stories about birth control and tattoos are appropriate in a high school newspaper, these students are not adults and the same freedoms that apply to adults don't necessarily apply to them. Fourteen-year-olds who may still have a sense of innocence about their childhood should have the right to hold on to that innocence for as long as possible. Teenagers who want information about adult subjects such as tattoos and birth control, can visit a magical place called "the internet."

Glick vs. Stephens in a Sharon-off
Ariel Sharon is a strange figure, and I can never decide if I like or loathe him. The Wall Street Journal's Bret Stephens expresses admiration for his move to dump Likud and start a brand new centrist party. He says Sharon could easily have won the Likud nomination and the general election as well, but wanted to offer Israelis a renewed and meaningful political choice, so he had to get out of Likud. Caroline Glick says not so fast-it wasn't some courageous and altruistic move, it was rank opportunism. She calls him self-obsessed and deluded, guided by fear of losing the Likud nomination and lying to the voters about his plans. Apparently, Sharon is campaigning on a pledge not to withdraw unilaterally from any more of Israel; she disbelieves him because he broke the exact same campaign promise with regard to Gaza.

Since Caroline speaks my language-resolve, responsibility, and free markets-in talking about this moment of Israeli history, I'm more inclined to agree with her. In fact, Bret Stephens's article reads like puffery. Read both and tell me what you think.

Bolivia Trip - What I Missed From the USA
This is what I missed from the USA (apart from my family and friends, of course). I chose to write this first, because it was so short and easy. The list of what I loved about Bolivia will take forever to write.

Ridiculous Lawsuit #42,639
Couple Sues Operators of Evolution Site
A California couple has sued the operators of a University of California-Berkeley Web site designed to help teachers teach evolution, claiming it improperly strays into religion.

Jeanne and Larry Caldwell of Granite Bay say portions of the Understanding Evolution Web site amount to a government endorsement of certain religious groups over others because the site is partly funded through a public money grant from the National Science Foundation.

In the lawsuit filed last month, the Caldwells contend the site is an effort "to modify the beliefs of public school science students so they will be more willing to accept evolutionary theory as true."
