strange days

Well, this is really fantastic! The alleged Duke rape victim was, according to the defense team, polishing her nails in the bathroom, not being raped during the unaccounted for time. But of course, strippers get paid to dance at all male parties and in the middle of said party decide to touch up their nails and disappear for 20 minutes! UhUh! If it wasn't so sick it would be funny!
Washington Post also covers the story. We learn that the Lacrosse team had already been called to attention for innapropriate behavior, and one of the players, as mentioned on a previous post was sentenced to community service for attacking a gay man. What did these kids learning in the Catholic prep schools they both graduated from? Impunity and jock superiority. Wasn't Columbine enough. Does this society want to pay this high a price for its competitive edge? Today they rape a woman, tomorrow the world.

I would like to live in Texas just so I could vote for
Kinky Friedman in the next gubernatorial race. He is according to Mojo Nixon, who is helping the campaign, the last lone star in a sea of mendacity. Yeaah!!

Cervical cancer could soon be a thing of the past, with the marketing of the H(uman) P(apilloma) V(irus) vaccine. Unless the right wing nuts continue their madness (maintaining that its wide spread use would send the wrong message to girls) at the FDA. This is a hugely important issue for women's health.

Little girls or dolls? It's very very creepy. These are not angels with attitude. These are a gross manifestation of a society gone awry on women and girls.
