and on another note ...

While watching GMA on ABC a few minutes ago ...

1) there was a 4 or 5 minute report on the High School gang rape in Richmond, California that happened during Prom Night last weekend. (up to 10 young men raped a girl while many more watched and some even took pictures).
ABC interviewed the superintendent of the school district and he talked about the need to review the security procedures. NOT ONCE was there any mention of the parents of any of those kids or of their responsibility. I think I see where some of the problem lies.

2) The next report on GMA on ABC was about the return of Brett Farve to the NFL after coming back from his multiple retirements. They talked about how he had "the audacity" to beat his old team, the Green Bay Packers. At no time was there any consideration whatsoever that his current team, the Minnesota Vikings, has other team members that may have taken part in that win over Green Bay. ABC seems to think Mr Farve is completely responsible for the wins of his team. Bullshit!!!!!

There. Now I feel better.

Bret is as responsible for beating the Pack, as *I* am responsible for keeping 70 AA members sober every morning (in a Club, by the way--grin!).

So I'm going to review the "security procedures" (like the school district?) and see why Bret is plastered onto that pedestal. (Guess he DOES deserve some kind of place of honor--most returns from retirement??)

What some teenagers endure just walking into school every day is heartbreaking.

This why I don't watch TV.

1) I really care about that.
2) I don't really care about that.

I guess we should both keep coming back.

It makes me glad that I don't have children.
